Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to drink and not have to worry about DUI's, fights with friends, missed opportunities because of alcohol, or putting your health at risk? Well, finally it's here. By following the guidelines set with the Party with a Plan program, your risk factors will be dramatically decreased.
Just like driving a car, following the speed limit lowers your risk of trouble on the road, for you and those around you. But the more you go over the limit and the more often you go over the limit, the more you put yourself and others at risk. The intention of the Know the Code guidelines is to provide clear and easy to follow directions on how to drink and lower the risk of problems.

Studies also show that if you have a plan in mind before you go out, your chances of problems decrease. The tricky part can be to stick to the plan, especially if you go over the low risk guidelines. Ask yourself these questions so you can Party with a Plan.
Who are you going out with? Who are you meeting later on?
What are you planning to do? Do you have the details in mind before you leave your room?
Where are you going? Is it random or do you have a plan? Do others know the location in case they need to reach you?
If you're planning to drink, do you know your limit? The majority of people who get in trouble with alcohol go over their limit.
Why are you drinking? Are you blowing off steam, looking to relax, or drinking to escape? Knowing why you're drinking can help you avoid trouble and additional problems.
How are you getting home? Know this before you go out! Is your driver planning to drink? If so, make sure you have an alternate ride home.
