Developed through results and data gained from extensive national studies relating to alcohol use by the general public, the “Alcohol Smart” Program was introduced to the Madison community in 2003 as a non-judgmental approach to alcohol consumption. “Alcohol Smart” focuses on increasing awareness and knowledge of alcohol through a curriculum based on behavioral skill training and motivational enhancement techniques designed to educate participants in avoiding the negative consequences which are often associated with drinking and establishing a healthy relationship with alcohol… should they choose to drink. Currently being taught at the University of Wisconsin to address underage and “binge” drinking issues among students, “Alcohol Smart” is also being implemented within the business and corporate sector of the community as part of employee wellness programs and human resources training and development programs.
