Keep What You've Earned Campaign

alcohol-abuse
Drug and alcohol abuse prevention is a top priority among the various military branches in the United States. Many active military personnel and veterans struggle with substance use disorders, identifying problematic users and making recovery services available is of the utmost importance. In an effort to gauge if policies are effective, the Navy Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention program launched the Keep What You've Earned campaign three years ago, the Navy Times reports.


The Navy’s campaign, surveyed based, shines a light on sailors':
  • Drinking Behavior
  • Understanding of Alcohol Abuse
  • Willingness to Seek Help
"The Keep What You've Earned campaign has been shaped by feedback from Sailors and its efforts would not be successful without their input," said NADAP director Dorice Favorite. "The annual survey allows our office to determine how well alcohol abuse prevention efforts and messages are being delivered across the fleet and shape the following year's plan to improve those efforts." 

This year, 1,400 Navy personnel and their families participated in the Keep What You've Earned campaign survey, according to the article. The anonymous survey is comprised of 25 questions, while brief, the survey covers a lot of ground.

The range of questions includes:
  • How you think the Navy handles drinking?
  • Are you aware of abuse prevention programs?
  • Are you willing to help yourself or another with a drinking problem?
  • Do you think the Navy has a culture of alcohol abuse.
"This survey gives us a pulse check on how those attitudes and behaviors have changed in the past year, and how we can continue to develop an innovative strategy to promote responsible drinking," said Favorite.
