  • Title of Project: The Effects of Peer-Facilitated Alcohol Interventions
  • U01 Researcher Collaborator: Mary Larimer, PH.D.
  • NIAAA Scientific Staff Collaborator: Peggy Murray


  • Summary:
    The long-term objective of this project is to reduce high-risk drinking and negative alcohol-related consequences among “high-risk” college students. The project proposes to assess the effectiveness of two peer-focused social norms-based alcohol interventions, a small group motivational interviewing intervention and an interactive peer theater intervention, to address the issues and challenges of high-risk drinkers, defined for this project as students who have been referred to the university’s judicial system for alcohol policy violations.

    Specific project aims include the following:
    1. Reduce high-risk drinking rates and associated high-risk behaviors and increase protective behaviors in our high-risk drinkers,
    2. Compare the effectiveness of two peer-based model interventions for high-risk drinkers with an education-only control condition,
    3. Identify variables that mediate or moderate program effectiveness, and
    4. Institutionalize effective program components and disseminate information concerning the effective components of this project to Institutions of Higher Education at a local, state, and national level.
