Web-based Alcohol Intervention to Reduce Sexual Risk in College Women

Researchers examined the effect of a brief, web-based alcohol intervention on reducing alcohol use and sexual risk behaviors in college women. Data from 160 participants revealed that the alcohol intervention was associated with higher levels of condom use assertiveness at a three-month follow-up. More alcohol use was associated with less condom use assertiveness for those with more significant sexual assault histories. The study “Reducing sexual risk behaviors: secondary analyses from a randomized controlled trial of a brief web-based alcohol intervention for underage, heavy episodic drinking college women,” is published in Addiction Research and Theory. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and the National Institute of Mental Health supported this research effort.
