A combination of education and peer support significantly reduce binge drinking within National Guard members. A study of over 1,000 National Guard members was conducted by Frederic Blow, Ph.D., lead author of the study and the director of the University of Michigan Addiction Center. This study showed that participants who engaged in a program that educated them on responsible drinking and peer support, reduced binge drinking by 50% in comparison to those who did not participate. The article concludes by reiterating that education and peer support are two effective strategies in reducing binge drinking among military personnel.
