Alcohol & Other Drug Resources

Information and resources to support healthy decisions around substance use

The Alcohol and Other Drug Resources website provides Northwestern students, parents, faculty, staff, and neighbors with a centralized hub for information, policies, programs, and services related to alcohol and other drugs. It represents the work of numerous campus partners who share the goal of supporting students in making responsible decisions about alcohol and other drugs, including low-risk use and non-use, to keep the Northwestern community safer and healthier.

BAC Estimator- Know Your Limit

BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) is a measure of how much alcohol is in your bloodstream. Keeping your BAC below .06 can help reduce the risks associated with alcohol use while still enjoying the experience. Lower-risk guidelines are to not consume more than 3 standard drinks for females and 4 for males. A BAC estimator can help you better understand where your level might be based on factors including weight, sex, amount consumed, and how long you have been drinking.
