Work On The Prevention Of Alcohol Abuse Begins

Laramie, Wy – The University of Wyoming and seven Community Colleges are looking at developing better programs for dealing with underage drinking and excessive alcohol use. U-W's Aware program received a grant to develop the program. AWARE coordinator Eric Alexander says the best prevention programs actually focus on moderation. But he says there still needs to be an enforcement angle. The Wind River Tribal College will also participate. Alexander says the grant runs for about a year, then it is up to the individual colleges to develop their programs further.
