Alcohol Safety Awareness Program
The New Mexico Tech’s Alcohol Safety and Awareness Program (NMT ASAP) is dedicated to preventing alcohol and opiod abuse in our community through education, especially focused on underage drinking, and using prescription opiods.
Our strategies include such effort as: publicizing law enforcement activities and enforcement of laws related to alcohol misuse, creating media that advertises the legal consequences of providing alcohol to a minor (fourth degree felony) and increase awareness of the harm associated with prescription drug misuse, developing and coordinating party patrols, educating on proper storage and disposal of prescription drugs, and strengthening policies on campus related to alcohol tobacco and other drug (ATOD) misuse.
We have formed four subcommittees or “action teams” that address separate strategies:
- Party Patrol
- ASAP Core Team
- Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug (ATOD) Policy Team
Our Mission: New Mexico Tech's Alcohol Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) aims to increase protective behaviors and decrease negative consequences associated with alcohol and drugs in our community.
Our Vision: Model life-long healthy attitudes and behaviors regarding alcohol, illicit drugs and prescription drugs, and where academic retention, success and graduation are the norm.
Our Goals: Educate the NMT and Socorro Communities about alcohol and drug issues that affect local rural communities and our campus
- Increase the capacity of the coalition to address the prevention of underage drinking and prescription painkiller misuse among youth and young adults at NMT and the Socorro Community.
- Strengthen the coalition structure and membership through outreach, activity committees and orientation packet.
- Increase the readiness of New Mexico Tech and Socorro to address the prevention of underage drinking and prescription painkiller misuse among youth and young adults in the community.
