The results of an alcohol intervention program for members of Greek chapter houses

Nicol D Savoy, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Abstract

The purpose of the study was to measure the impact of the Greek Reevolution alcohol awareness program designed for members of Greek chapter houses. The success of the intervention program was measured by looking at three variables before and after the intervention; a self-report of alcohol usage (typical peak blood alcohol level), the Readiness to Change Questionnaire, and the Rutgers Alcohol Problems Inventory (RAPI). ^ Self-report surveys were completed by a sample of members from five Greek chapter houses who participated in the Greek Reevolution program (treatment) and members from two Greek chapter houses that participated in the program (control). Pretests were administered on September 20, 2004 for those in the treatment group; the control group completed surveys on October 4, 2004. The posttests were administrated on April 18, 19, and 26th of 2004 for both the treatment and control groups. Only those participants that completed assessment surveys before and after the intervention were included in the sample for analysis (258). ^ Results showed an increase in typical peak blood alcohol level, no movement in the level of readiness to make changes, and an increase in consequences associated with alcohol. Based on these findings the impact of the Greek Reevolution program was not successful in achieving its intended outcome. Implications for higher education are addressed and suggestions for future study are presented. ^
