BASICS: Brief Alcohol Screening & Intervention for College Students
What is BASICS?
BASICS,Brief Alcohol Screening & Intervention for College Students is a harm reduction, preventative intervention for college students. It is aimed at students who areat risk for heavy alcohol consumption and consequences of this consumption such as missing class, accidents and violence.
What BASICS is NOT?
BASICS is not an abstinence-only program. The program provides information to students, but what the student chooses to do is entirely up to them. BASICS helps students examine their own behavior in a judgment-free environment. BASICS is not designed to be longer then two sessions, but referrals are available for students who think they would like a more extensive intervention.
What should I expect if I am participating in BASICS?
Two, one-on-one, 50 minute sessions with Stetson's Executive Director of Holisitc Wellness, Lynn Schoenberg. You must schedule both sessions to start the program. At the first meeting, you will become acquainted with your facilitator and the program. You will discuss what has brought you to BASICS and answer brief interview questions. Before your next session, you will complete e-CHUG, an online feedback tool and a brief online survey tool. This will take less thenfourty minutes. The second BASICS session will be used to review your personalized feedback report and identify potential changes to reduce your risk of developing alcohol-related problems.
Who will know about my attendance at BASICS?
BASICS sessions are confidential. Information from BASICS will not be disclosed without the student's permission. If you are referred from Judicial Affairs, and you grant permission, your attendance, and only your attendance, will be reported back to the Director of Judicial Affairs.
