E-CHUG: An Online Alcohol Use Assessment and Feedback Tool for Puget Sound Students
Puget Sound Substance Abuse Prevention Programs offers students free access to the e-CHUG (electronic Check-Up to Go). The e-CHUG is an online, personalized assessment tool that lets you see how your drinking habits, family history and campus norms affect your life and future. The e-CHUG is a brief assessment tool that takes about 10-15 minutes to complete, is self-guided, requires no face-to-face contact time with a counselor, and is completely anonymous. You can take it once or on multiple occasions to track changes in your alcohol use (just keep your e-CHUG identification number). The program is available to Puget Sound students, faculty, staff, and parents.
When you access the e-CHUG, you are prompted to enter some demographic information and information on your personal alcohol use. After all information has been entered, you submit the form. The information you entered is processed and then compares your responses to national and Puget Sound college student norms. Then your personalized feedback is displayed in a standard format.
Your participation in the e-CHUG is voluntary. You may withdraw from participating at any time. The Puget Sound e-CHUG is serviced through a secure Web site at San Diego State University.
The e-CHUG is anonymous and no individual information is kept or provided to the University of Puget Sound.
If you have questions about the survey, feedback or information presented please contact the Substance Abuse Coordinator, in Counseling, Health, and Wellness Services (See "Contact Information" on the right).
The Puget Sound e-CHUG is financially sponsored by the Washington State College Coalition for Substance Abuse Prevention.
