Alcohol Skills Training Program (ASTP)

What is Alcohol Skills Training Program (ASTP)

Alcohol Skills Training Program, also known as ASTP, intends to educate students on alcohol-related behavior while increasing participants’ interest in critically examining their drinking patterns and eventually implementing the skills they learn. In doing so, participants can minimize the potential negative consequences of alcohol use through prevention, reduced consumption or abstinence. The purpose of this program is to help students who choose to drink make informed decisions about their alcohol consumption and to help them do so in a less dangerous and risky way.
