Video: Booze, Sex, and Reality Checks program

| © Washington State University

Students at Washington State University are given the opportunity to explore what they expect and want from a university social experience, including alcohol use and sexual decision making, through the University’s “Booze, Sex and Reality Checks” outreach.

WSU counseling psychology doctoral student Adisa Anderson from Alcohol & Drug Counseling, Assessment, & Prevention Services (ADCAPS) explains the program, and how the harm reduction approach can effectively reduce risk and help students be safer and smarter in their social lives.

Read more about ADCAPS, the Booze, Sex and Reality Checks program, and the assessment of the program’s effectiveness at adcaps.wsu.edu.
