Intervention Services

ATOD Intervention Services works to empower students to make healthy and responsible choices concerning use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. No-use and low-risk behaviors are supported while the realities of the negative consequence of high-risk use are addressed. Strategies to reduce ATOD-related barriers to academic and social success are primary intervention goals.

What is it?

Aggies Act is a UC Davis protocol, adopted by our campus Fall 2017, that removes barriers when seeking help in potentially life threatening situations involving alcohol and other substances.

Aggies Act is both a Good Samaritan and Medical Amnesty policy, encouraging a shared responsibility among UC Davis students to take action. The protocol applies to both the person experiencing a medical emergency and the friend/bystander calling for help.
