e-CHUG Assessment Details

e-CHUG is a brief confidential self-assessment tool, designed to give students personalized feedback about their alcohol use. The basic intervention/assessment takes about 20-30 minutes to complete and review. It draws on Motivational Interviewing (Miller & Rollnick, 2002) and Social Norms feedback theories (Haines & Spear, 1996).

The feedback, that is included with the assessment is as follows: 

  • Quantity and Frequency of Drinking, Caloric Intake
  • Amount Consumed and Peak BAC
  • Cost of alcohol spent
  • Norm Comparisons
  • Amount and Percent of Income Spent on Alcohol
  • Tolerance Level
  • Negative Consequences of Alcohol Use
  • Genetic Risk Score Explanation, advice, local referral information

NOTE: WELLU® PARTICIPANTS must complete the PRVC and answer the open-ended questions at the end of the assessment summary (click on the green check mark). After completion of the assessment and PRVC, participants must send an email notification to Kathryn Steward: kathryn.steward@wku.edu
