SCOPE Tip of the Week

Teaching Safe Drinking Habits

What is the goal when drinking alcohol? Many students who choose to drink say, “To get drunk!” This is a bad answer, but why?

Becoming intoxicated (obtaining a blood alcohol level of over .10) increases one’s risk of experiencing the negative effects of drinking. Students who drink with the goal of getting drunk end up having stronger hangovers, since alcohol is a toxin and the body needs time to clear it from the system.

For more on teaching safe drinking habits, please view our full Tip of the Week here.
