The Network CA: Fall Kickoff


The Network CA

Keeping California Members Connected



As the new academic year starts up, we hope that momentum for quality and evidence-based programs to address collegiate alcohol and other drug issues on your campus flourishes.  Fortunately, a new tool that may help that happen was released today by the National Institutes of Health.  

ColleteAIM, or College Alcohol Intervention Matrix, was released today, and available for free by visiting their website. This resource will allow campus professionals to easily tailor a set of prevention programs that have the best chance of impacting the problem.  To help speed up its utilization, NIAAA will be mailing a copy to every college and university president in the U.S..  

Much like their "Call to Action" report a decade or so ago, this is a carefully constructed matrix that rates the effectiveness and cost of almost 60 intervention strategies.

I'm sure we'll all be talking about this tool in the coming months.  If you have any feedback on the usefulness of the tool, I'd love to hear it.
