Project A+ was designed to examine the combined use of alcohol and other substances (ALC+) in order to inform the development and adaptation of effective intervention efforts. This project looks at students’ motives for engaging in ALC+ use, motives to avoid ALC+ use, and contexts where ALC+ use is most prevalent. This research also examines the impact of these motives relative to the influence of peers and situational contexts on ALC+ use occasions. Findings from this study will inform future interventions aimed at reducing comorbid alcohol and substance use among college students.
