Use of ALERT Labs' surveys to identify students' attitudes toward and behavior re. alcohol and other drugs is FREE under certain CONDITIONS:
- give us credit in a footnote and
- let us know that you are using the survey. See under CONTACT (www.alertlabs.org/contact.php)
- share your results with us in excel files which have been cleaned to remove any identifying information about the school or individual students, but with a paragraph re. geographical location, kind of institution, and other demographics.
If you would like help in interpreting your data, send us an email with "Data Help" in the subject line and we will get back to you. For help with posters, send us an email with "Poster Help" in the subject line and for help with other aspects of the ALERT Labs/MSA programs, tell us you would like "Project Help." (P.S. If you would just like a little advice on interpreting the data or designing social norms messages, take a look at the PowerPoint presentations under Program>Making Sobriety Attractive on this web site, http://www.alertlabs.org/programs.php?program_id=1 then view materials under MEDIA).

Hosting a Drinking Party for Graduating High School Students Can Result in Arrest, Big Fines and Court Costs, MIP’s for the Guests, and Even Tragedy…. The best choice for Graduation Parties is to go alcohol-free, focusing on activities suited for 18-year olds rather than targeting the party to adults.
