Understanding College Students Who Most Often Drink Before an Event (“Pregaming”)

Research Society on Alcoholism

“Pregaming” is defined as drinking alone or with other people before going to an event or get-together where alcohol may be present. Pregaming often involves rapid drinking, which can quickly produce high blood alcohol concentrations (BACs) that meet or exceed the legal limit for intoxication. It is a common, high-risk drinking activity among college students that remains largely unaffected by efforts to reduce its occurrence. This study sought to identify profiles of pregamers to characterize the specific risks associated with the behavior, and to develop more effective prevention strategies on college campuses.

Addictions are diseases of the brain, not personality defects or criminal behavior

Empowering individuals with alcohol use disorders to chart their own pathway to recovery

Research Society on Alcoholism

These options and other real-world advice will be shared at the 41st annual scientific meeting of the Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) in San Diego June 17-21.
