There are several gaps in the studies as the public health perspectives are not focused especially in the students, students are not given the awareness at the early ages that how binge drinking can impact on their health status. Thus, the students are facing the severe disorders due to the excessive drinking, the major gap in the study is the optimal treatment strategies that there are not enough services for the students and based on the reason students are suffering from the severe alcohol dependence.

The application include the detailed and logical program work plan, which is done monthly for the 1 year plan, the plan reflect the program objectives and the appropriate staffing that is given below in the budgeting. The components are linked together because the work plan provide the tools and the expenses for the activities that are important for measuring the progress, in this way the work plan is consistent with the budget.


Through estimating the 1 year budget for the Michigan Nutrition Network, there is needed to get the Grants of minimum $500,000 for the Health Improvement Special Projects from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Department of Health and Human Services. However, grants from other sources need to be focused so that there could be proper education services for the students of Michigan schools. With the minimum salary ranges of the staff per year and with the home delivery meals for our customers we have got the total of $474,750 excluding the indirect cost. Moreover, it is necessary to get the maximum advantage from the governmental institutes in order to get the benefits. The budget reflect the total cost of the proposed program also including the in-kind costs, thus, in this way the customers could be served in the appropriate way and the education of health facilities can be provided to the students.
