Alcohol abuse is a prevalent problem in colleges today. Students who drink at at-risk levels are likely to suffer negative consequenes as a result of drinking in addition to affecting those around them. The cost of underage drinking at at-risk levels can cause emotinal, physical, and monetary damages that have been estimated to cost $58 billion a year. Contributing factors that affect student drinking include: the college student's developmental age, the environment around the student, and the misperception college students have that other students drink more alcohol than they actually do lead to students drinking at this perceived level. Until now, there have been two unexplored areas of resarch: (a)assessing the extent to which demographic characteristics, school characteristics, and behavioral risk factors explain the use of harm reductin techniques, and (b)looking at how these characterisitcs and us of harm reduction techniques affect the number of negative consequences students experience. Research addressing these two areas will be presented, using a Harm Reductioin Model to support this research. College adminnistrators and health care professionals can gain insight into at-risk drinking. This research gives evidence to new strategies that can be developed to help decrease the negative consequences from drinking.
