Abstract

The focus of the current study was to examine college students’ alcohol use risk levels as assessed by an online Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) program. Additionally, the study examined reasons to change alcohol use, readiness to change, importance to change, and confidence in success among students who reported high-risk alcohol use. Use of the digital SBIRT program helped to identify students drinking at high risk. In light of the variety of reasons to change provided by students at high risk, prevention and intervention efforts should be multi-faceted. More research is needed to better understand students’ importance, confidence, and readiness to change.
