Through this supportive, educational intervention program, Caron
turns students’ drug or alcohol-related mistakes into learning
opportunities. AIP and DIP are classes on high-risk drinking, the cycle
of addiction, legal and professional consequences of substance abuse,
and addiction as a disease model. In both courses, students are
encouraged to evaluate their strategies for success and set goals for
positive change. Most institutions require students to attend one AID or
DIP coarse as part of the judicial sanction process.
