alcohol and drug education program

BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students) has, as its primary goal, moving a student in the direction of reducing risky behaviors and harmful effects from drinking, as opposed to focusing explicitly on a specific drinking goal such as abstinence or reductions in drinking. BASICS is conducted over the course of three 1-hour interview sessions. In the first interview, the facilitator assesses the student's consumption pattern. During the second interview, the facilitator provides personalized feedback based on the assessment, including specific suggestions about ways to reduce future health risks associated with alcohol use. The third and final interview is a follow-up conversation about progress made towards the student's goals.
