BASICS Alcohol Program
Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) is an evidence-based, educational approach used to address problematic alcohol use. It targets students who drink heavily and have experienced, or are at risk for, alcohol-related problems. BASICS is designed to help students make better alcohol-use decisions based on a clear understanding of the genuine risks associated with problem drinking, enhance motivation to change drinking habits, develop skills to moderate drinking, and promote healthier choices among young adults. The program is conducted over the course of two sessions and uses an empathetic, non-confrontational, and non-judgmental approach. BASICS been shown to be effective and has been implemented in many universities, with a number of universities offering BASICS as a diversion program for underage students arrested for alcohol possession and consumption.
Students who are interested in learning more about or decreasing their alcohol use can contact the CPC for more information.
