The Alcohol Etiology Treatment and Other Health (ETOH) Behaviors Lab, led by Dr. Abby Braitman, studies drinking behaviors among emerging adults. A primary focus of our research is to enhance the reach, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness of existing interventions. Specifically, we are interested in targeting college drinking by employing technology-based techniques that are easily adoptable at institutions for mass implementation. We also explore alcohol harm reduction more broadly, including daily process examinations of drinking among college students (e.g., social and environmental factors), as well as intervention and etiology among other high-risk populations (e.g., noncollege attending emerging adults, sexual minority women, high-risk families). Finally, we have a strong emphasis on using advanced quantitative methods as they apply to substance use behaviors.
