What is AlcoholEdu?

AlcoholEdu is a web-based alcohol education program that is recognized nationally for its effectiveness. This program combines the latest prevention techniques and research to educate students about the impact of alcohol. As you well know, alcohol is a significant issue in the lives of students.

Your physical and emotional health, now and throughout your life, will serve as an important foundation for all that you will accomplish.
