Through a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), has a campaign, the Watch UR BAC program teaches Texans about the dangers of alcohol and other drugs misuse —including binge drinking, the understanding of alcohol poisoning as well as the dangers of impaired driving. The Watch UR BAC program is a free resource for Texas community groups, faith-based organizations, schools, and businesses.
Watch UR BAC is an awareness campaign that refers to blood alcohol concentration (BAC) which is used as a measure of the degree of intoxication of an individual. Binge drinking is a continuing problem in Texas, and most who binge drink do not know the amount and effects of the alcohol they are consuming.
Programs are offered for Kindergartners to Older Adults and offer age-appropriate content and length of programs. Each individual program is tailored to meet the needs of the audience and can vary from presentations to hands-on activities such as our DWI Prevention Simulator, Drunk Goggles, Marijuana Goggles, and our newest Polydrug Goggles. We even offer Virtual Reality Goggles for a more technical logical educational experience.
