Learn More About e-CHUG

The e-CHUG (electronic Check-Up to Go) is an interactive Web survey that allows college and university students to enter information about their drinking patterns and receive feedback about their use of alcohol. The assessment takes about six to seven minutes to complete, is self-guided, and requires no face-to-face contact time with a counselor or administrator. No information that would identify you is required for e-CHUG.

Using e-CHUG

When you access the e-CHUG, you are prompted to enter information about yourself. In addition to demographic information, you will be asked for information about your drinking habits and family history. You will also be asked to complete the World Health Organization's AUDIT.

After all information has been entered, you submit the form. The information you entered is then validated and processed. The e-CHUG calculates a number of variables and compares your responses to national and local college norms. Then your personalized feedback is displayed in an easy-to-read format.

Requirements for Using e-CHUG

The only requirement to use e-CHUG is that you must have a UAnet ID and password to start the program.

Confidentiality of e-CHUG

Yes. Your e-CHUG results are confidential, and there is no way for anyone but you to see your results. The only reason you are using your UAnet ID and password is so that only University of Akron persons can access the site. Nothing that can identify you is being recorded.
