According to New-Medical.net, alcohol interventions that take place face to face are more effective than those that take place via computer to curb college drinking. Both methods have been found to produce results in the short term, but only face to face interventions produce long term results, research has found.

Lead author, Kate Carey of Brown University, says computer-delivered interventions (CDIs) have become a popular way for colleges to reach students about the dangers of excessive drinking. She studied CDIs and other alcohol interventions from 48 colleges across the country.

Carey states, “If your resources are limited, and resources always are, and that’s all that you can field for your institution, then offering a computer-delivered intervention is better than nothing.
