BASICS Alcohol Education Consultations
BASICS stands for Brief Alcohol Screening & Intervention for College Students. The goal of these meetings is to help students learn more about alcohol, how alcohol effects the body and help students find a positive relationship with alcohol that does not negative impact their long-term goals.
There are two ways a student can have a BASICS session:
1) Self Referral: These sessions will help you learn more about alcohol, how to navigate social situations where it is present, how to avoid peer pressure and identify healthy drinking behaviors. If you're trying to determine if your drinking or your relationship with alcohol is unhealthy, we are here to help. Please e-mail Kelly Schumacher, Assistant Director for Wellness Education, at email@example.com to set-up a meeting.
2) Sanctions referral: When a student has an incident involving alcohol or other drugs and it is determined additional alcohol education would be beneficial a student will be sanctioned to BASICS. In these cases there are two meetings with the Wellness Services Office and instructions on setting up these appointments are provided by the Student Affairs office or Residential Life & Housing.
