CHOICES About Alcohol
CHOICES is a 1.5 hour program that
focuses on making safer decisions regarding alcohol consumption. Rather
than focusing on abstinence, this program encourages a harm-reduction
approach to drinking. While it is important to recognize the illegal
nature of any underage alcohol use, it is equally important to provide
students with accurate information and strategies for reducing their
risk if they choose to drink alcohol.
CHOICES is recommended for all students, especially those that are new to Rice.
