BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening Inventory for College Students)
BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students) is designed to assist students in examining their drinking and other drug-use behavior in a judgment-free environment. BASICS is not an abstinence-only program. Instead, the goals are selected by the student and are aimed at reducing risky behaviors and potential harmful consequences. Services provided through the BASICS program are non-judgmental, non-labeling, and confidential.
This service is available to all all registered undergraduate, graduate, and professional students on the Morningside campus, including Affiliated Schools: Teachers College, Union Theological Seminary and Jewish Theological Seminary.
BASICS involves an initial meeting with a BASICS provider, the completion of an online assessment, and a second meeting with the same provider. Appointments can be scheduled with a BASICS provider online and a variety of times and days are offered. If you are interested in self-referring to BASICS, please complete the Alcohol Self Assessment.
