BENZOS, BLOW & BOURBON:
AN HONEST CONVERSATION
Substance Abuse Prevention | Student Program
In almost every college coming-of-age movie, beer pong, parties, and hangovers are common. For many, the big screen reﬂects our lived reality. A majority of students use alcohol and perhaps experiment with other drugs. It’s normal, right? While most will not find themselves in a hospital ICU with a drug overdose, most students know someone who battles alcoholism or addiction. These battles are often fought alone, with many friends having difficulty confronting the dark nature of the disease.
In this powerful program, Archie uses his own personal journey to show how easily partying turns problematic. Students learn how to spot warning signs in their peers. They equip themselves to have vulnerable conversations with those struggling with recovery.
PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES

Due to the global pandemic, Archie plans on delivering 100% of his programs virtually for the time being. Virtual programs do not have to be boring, and can be more effective than in-person events.
Archie's virtual programs are delivered with the same objectives and learning outcomes as other events. Students react well to the virtual programming and oftentimes feel more comfortable engaging over this medium.
