These are not surveys designed to get information from you, but instead an opportunity to reflect on your usage of alcohol which you may find to be interesting and useful.

YC Online Training for Alcohol & Drug Prevention Strategies - We invite you to view YC’s one-hour training module on Alcohol & Drug Prevention Strategies. This training seeks to increase help-seeking and active bystander behaviors by increasing student knowledge and confidence when it comes to understanding risk factors, identifying risky behaviors, exploring personal motivations for making good choices, and learning how to stick to boundaries to support better choices. It also provides information about prevention & recovery support resources available at the College and in Yavapai County.
