Alcohol education offered to students

An alcohol education program is available for middle and high school students across Oklahoma. The state Department of Education, in partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, is offering AlcoholEdu through an online platform. The program, free to seventh- to 12th-grade students, is part of the state's “2 Much 2 Lose” underage drinking prevention effort. The course delivers personalized feedback to all students based on their drinking experiences and helps them establish goals for making smart decisions about alcohol. So far, 25 Oklahoma schools have used AlcoholEdu, and more schools are scheduled to begin this spring.
