ABSTRACT
This study investigated the impacts made by five 50-minute targeted educational sessions that incorporated both supply and demand reduction strategies aimed at alcohol. One hundred thirteen University of Toledo students participated in the study that involved both a control and experimental group. On measured items related to personal alcohol use, students in the control group reported 9 significant increases and 1 significant decrease. On measured items related to drinking and sexual activity, students in the experimental group reported only 3 significant increases and 11 significant decreases.
