Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the eCHECKUP TO GO (eCHUG) program⎼ a web-based alcohol intervention program used to reduce drinking⎼ that measure perceived effectiveness from high school students. The program had been used to reduce drinking among college students, and now with several adaptations, high school students. Findings opposite to our hypothesis regarding gender perceptions, indicated that males found the program to be more useful and user-friendly than females. Implications for eCHUG and other electronic alcohol programs are discussed.
