The mission of the Center for Alcohol & Related-issues Education (CARE) is to plan, implement, and promote educational activities which encourage the health and well-being of Baldwin Wallace students. Further, CARE intends to provide the resources and create an environment where Baldwin Wallace students can learn the necessary tools to take responsibility for their personal growth, development, and well-being.
The Baldwin Wallace Center for Alcohol & Related-issues Education (CARE) was established as a result of a federal grant awarded to the College in September 1993 by the Fund for the Improvement of Secondary Education (FIPSE). During the 1996-97 and 1997-98 school years, CARE was known as the Wellness Resource Center. In 1998 the name was changed in order to reflect a clearer focus on alcohol and related issues.
All CARE Organizations support 0-1-3 for responsible drinking:
0=ZERO drinks if under 21, driving, chemically dependent, on medication, or pregnant
1=ONE drink an hour if male and over 21 (12 oz. beer, 4 oz. glass of wine, 1.5 oz. shot of liquor); for women ONE drink every 1.5 hours if over 21 due to differences in alcohol absorption rates
3= No more than THREE drinks per day, and/or drink no more than THREE times a week that you drink.
