Although the evidence is circumstantial, there are reasons to assume that some college flight students suffer problems relating to excessive alcohol use. Colleges can be more effective in dealing with these problems if the special needs of flight students are considered. Such programs can be as simple as coordinating existing campus alcohol programs as an integrated education, intervention, and medical recertification effort. The goal of any alcohol program would be to provide an environment where flight students can objectively examine their own drinking habits, and have treatment options available if needed.
