Award Description: The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism has identified hazardous drinking in college students as a significant concern and a research priority due to its significant prevalence on many college campuses and its association with many adverse consequences. Research suggests that engaging college students in activities unrelated to drinking decreases alcohol use. This pilot study will seek to decrease alcohol use by engaging sedentary hazardous drinking college students in an exercise program. Exercise has numerous mental and physical health benefits. Exercise is hypothesized to reduce hazardous drinking due to its function as a coping mechanism.
Project Description: This research project includes work on the following scientific aims: AIM 1. To determine if the MET+CM intervention increases exercise in sedentary hazardous drinking college students in comparison to the MET alone condition. AIM 2. To evaluate whether the MET+CM intervention decreases alcohol use in comparison to the MET alone condition. AIM 3. To determine acceptability of interventions within sedentary hazardous drinking college students
