Stand Up to Alcohol Abuse

Reduce risky alcohol use

Alcohol impairs judgment, making for some risky situations. If you or your friends use alcohol, make sure to look out for one another. Be on the watch for signs that trouble is brewing and help get your friend out of the situation. If a friend's alcohol or marijuana use is negatively affecting them or others, make a plan to share your concern. These situations can be challenging; StandUP! will give you skills to handle them effectively.

You might find yourself intervening as an active bystander when alcohol is present. Alcohol situations vary based on the atmosphere, so preparing for different situations is important.
