Reducing Drinking Among Junior Enlisted Air Force Members in Five Communities

Early Findings of the EUDL Program’s Influence on Self-Reported Drinking Behaviors

Categorized Under: Defense, Health



ICF International was selected as the external entity to conduct an evaluation of the Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) initiative in the U.S. Air Force (USAF), including the base and surrounding civilian community. ICF was chosen by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), in collaboration with the USAF and Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). The goal of the evaluation is to measure the effectiveness of the interventions on drinking behavior and associated alcohol-related misconducts by active-duty personnel.

The OJJDP awarded discretionary grants as part of the EUDL initiative to design and implement a set of interventions using an environmental strategies approach to reduce drinking and associated alcohol-related misconducts among active-duty Air Force members ages 18–25.
