The eCHECKUP TO GO programs are personalized, evidence-based, online prevention interventions for Alcohol & Marijuana developed by counselors and psychologists at San Diego State University. Drawing on Motivational Interviewing (Miller & Rollnick, 2002) and Social Norms Theory (Perkins & Berkowitz, 1986), the eCHECKUP TO GO programs are designed to motivate individuals to reduce their consumption using personalized information about their own drinking and risk factors. The programs were designed and are updated with the most current and reliable research available. The eCHECKUP TO GO programs are currently in use on over 550 universities and colleges across in 49 states, in Canada, Australia and Ireland.
