BASICS is a highly flexible and personalized program for screening persons for alcohol and other drug problems. It is conducted over the course of two sessions, plus a follow up via email or in person, depending on student availability. BASICS has been recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration as a “model program” of harm reduction associated with drinking among college students. If students or others referring them have concerns about use of other substances (e.g., marijuana), the screening and evaluation protocol addresses these substances, in addition to alcohol.
If, in the opinion of the Health & Wellness Center professional staff, a student requires further evaluation and/or intervention of his/her drinking or other drug use behavior, a referral will be made for additional services in the community.
