Alcohol Skills Training Program

Alcohol Skills Training Program (ASTP)

ASTP is recognized by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism as a higher effectiveness individual level strategy to address alcohol use by college students.   In order to use theory based and evidence informed initiatives, the CWU Wellness Center will now be conducting 90 minute sessions for students self-selecting to attend or as a means for students to meet sanctions through student rights and responsibilities.  If you were previously sanctioned to complete Prime for Life, ASTP will replace that requirement.  IMPORTANT: ASTP will not meet court sanctions for an 8 hour educational course.  Alcohol and Drug Information School (ADIS) is provided in the community at Merit Resource Services to meet that need (509-925-9821). 

Participants review historical theories as well as the current research based concepts of predicting risk for alcohol problems. Individual genetic and biological risks will be introduced, along with corresponding low-risk quantity and frequency alcohol consumption guidelines.

All participants will receive information of strategies for assessing their personal health and genetic risks as well as for reducing of their alcohol consumption to lower risk, if indicated by the research.
