e-CHUG An Online Alcohol Use Self-Screening Instrument for KSU Students

Kansas State University Alcohol and Other Drug Education Service offers KSU students free access to the e-CHUG (electronic Check-Up to Go). The e-CHUG is an online option for students to use to gain insight into their relationship with alcohol. The e-CHUG is a brief assessment tool that takes about 6-7 minutes to complete, is self-guided, requires no face-to-face contact time with a counselor, and is completely anonymous.

When you access the e-CHUG, you are prompted to enter some demographic information and information on your personal alcohol use. After all information has been entered, you submit the form. The information you entered is processed and then compares your responses to national and local college norms. Then your personalized feedback is displayed in a standard format.

The e-CHUG's individualized feedback provides students with useful information on such items as:

  • Calorie intake
  • Peak Blood Alcohol Concentration
  • Income spent on alcohol
  • Norm comparisons
  • Tolerance levels
  • Genetic risk score
  • Personal results and explanations
  • Referral information

The e-CHUG is also a simple way for students to find out if a professional consultation might be useful. If, after completing the e-CHUG and receiving your feedback, you would like to speak with an alcohol and drug abuse counselor about your concerns, call KSU Counseling Services at 532-6927 and ask to talk to someone in the Alcohol and Other Drug Education Service office. Or, you may come by Counseling Services office, which is located on the 2nd floor of the English/Counseling Services building to schedule an individual appointment.

Your participation in the e-CHUG is voluntary. You may withdraw from participating at any time. The KSU e-CHUG is serviced through a secure website at San Diego State University.

No individual information is kept or provided to Kansas State University.
