dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of participating in a challenge course program on decreasing the prevalence of substance abuse, reckless driving, and sexual promiscuity among college students. These negative risk-taking behaviors were evaluated due to their ramifications on individual development and college campus culture. Challenge course programs were selected as the treatment in this study due to the interplay between risk and developmental growth. Results showed a significant decrease in binge drinking and marijuana use in the treatment group. en_US
