The CSULB Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD) Program develops innovative campus-wide programs, services, and resources through student programming, outreach and awareness, alcohol education, and prevention activities across campus. With alcohol-related tragedies repeatedly making headlines nationwide, there is a need for intervention. The CSULB ATOD Program responds to this demand by promoting safe and responsible decision making about alcohol use and creating engaging programs targeted at these issues.

In an effort to reach our large student population, collaboration with campus departments such as Housing & Residential Life, Athletics, and Greek Life are done year round during annual events such as Resident Assistant Training, Student Orientation and Retention activities, health fairs, Welcome Week events, Smorgasport, spring break events, and classroom presentations. The ATOD Program also provides information by distributing coffee sleeves containing ATOD-related information, Safe Party/ Alcohol Poisoning door hangers, and 21st birthday e-cards. The e-CHECKUP to go for Alcohol and Marijuana Online Assessment and AA meetings are also popular services open to students.

The ATOD Program strives to become the ultimate resource for students, providing knowledge about the impact of drunk driving and about safe parties, and aims to reduce underage and risky drinking. Our program's success is a result of the dedicated staff and students of CSULB who remain devoted and support the ATOD Program and all its endeavors.
