Alcohol 101 and Alcohol 202 utilize the evidence-based, Prime For Life, lifestyle risk-reduction model to educate youth on alcohol/other drug-related health and impairment problems. Alcohol 101 is a prerequisite for Alcohol 202. Both programs are designed to influence youth to make low-risk choices for a lifetime and decrease high-risk choices that could harm their health and cause them to lose the things they value the most.
Topics covered in Alcohol 101 include: Health problems and impairment problems associated with alcohol use, understanding biological risk for alcohol-related problems, tolerance and trigger levels, psychological and social influences affecting choices, identifying low-risk choices, What is a drink?, resistance skills.
Topics covered in Alcohol 202 include: Review of topics covered in Alcohol 101, low-risk guidelines, myths about the alcohol industry, alcohol advertising, phases of use/addiction, alcoholism/chemical dependency in the family.
We believe that with the introduction of new information, time to process it, and support for change, young people are willing to explore new beliefs and change behaviors – if the information they receive is valid, the support given is genuine, and the benefits are clear.
Target Population: 7th – 9th Grade Youth
