In the first month of the pandemic, alcohol sales increased by 54% from previous months (Pollard et al., 2020). The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (2019) also reported 53% of college students drank within the past month and, among that population, 33% reported binge drinking. Additionally, previous research indicates traumatic life events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, are associated with alcohol use and alcohol dependency.
This free, informational webinar will discuss the safe return to campus and social activities, the dangers of a day drinking culture, and how to manage anxiety and alcohol use while adapting to post-pandemic life at college. A panel discussion will follow the presentation and will feature a team of experts who will answer questions and share strategies for managing alcohol use and reducing anxiety.
