Abstract

60 male university students were assigned to 1 of 3 alcohol abuse prevention strategies (behavioral self-management, alcohol education, and self-monitoring of drinking behavior) or to a no-treatment control condition. Focus was on both gross alcohol consumption and specific drinking behavior. No differences in alcohol consumption were found between the preventive strategies at 2 wks posttreatment. At 5 mo posttreatment, however, Ss in the self-monitoring group drank significantly less than those in the other treatment conditions. It is suggested that self-monitoring strategies be incorporated into alcohol abuse prevention programs on college campuses. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
