The eCheckup To Go is an online assessment that will ask you several questions about your relationship with alcohol and nicotine. The purpose of this assessment is to give you information to help you live the healthiest life you can. If you have questions about why a specific question is being asked, you will have the option to click a link and learn more about why this question is being asked of you.
There is not a “one-size-fits-all” approach to alcohol and nicotine use, nor is it our goal to force anyone to make any changes that they are not ready for. Our hope is that you are safe, smart and responsible in your choices around substance use. Once you have finished the assessment, you will be provided individualized feedback and information compared to that of your GVSU peers. If you would like to return to this information at any time, simply type in the code that you are given when you first begin the assessment. Alternatively, you will have the option to retake the assessment if your use changes.
Please take the eCheckup as honestly as you can. We will not ask for your name and will not collect any identifiable information. This data will be kept anonymous. Please think carefully about each question and be as accurate as possible in your responses so that the feedback you receive will be tailored specifically to your needs.
To verify the completion of this assessment, please print the certificate at the end of the assessment to provide as proof of completion to the referring party.
In addition to the information provided to you by the eCheckup, please consider the following:

Medical Amnesty provides some exemption to reduce barriers for minors to seek medical attention in the matter of an alcohol or drug emergency. The Medical Amnesty law indicates:
- A minor (under the age of 21) who, after consuming alcohol, voluntarily presents themselves to a health facility or agency for treatment or observation, including medical examination and treatment for any condition as a result of sexual assault (as defined in Michigan law).
- Any minor (under the age of 21) who accompanied an individual who, after consuming alcohol, voluntarily presented themselves to a health facility or agency for treatment or observation, including medical examination and treatment for any condition as a result of sexual assault (as defined in Michigan law)
- Any minor (under the age of 21) who initiated contact with law enforcement or emergency medical services personnel for the purpose of obtaining medical assistance in connection with a legitimate health care concern.
