Heavy episodic drinking and smoking are significant public health problems on college campuses across the United States. The most salient benefit of this research was the development of an intervention designed to target concurrent drinking and smoking among college students. The program could be widely distributed to college students and potentially reduce the incidence of high-risk heavy drinking and smoking on college campuses.
