The Alcohol Use Self-Assessment is a brief, anonymous 10-question survey designed to assist students in determining whether their alcohol use results in low, moderate, or high risk to their health. If the results indicate a moderate or high risk, students have the opportunity to sign-up for BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students) and to make an appointment with a provider at Counseling and Psychological Services.
The BASICS program is designed to assist students in examining their drinking and other drug-use behavior in a judgment-free environment. This 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 program are non-judgmental, non-labeling, and private.
