The WFU CHOICES Program uses the Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) curriculum, which includes an alcohol use evaluation along with detailed personal drinking feedback and planning. The primary goal of BASICS is to provide objective lifestyle feedback and to support positive changes in drinking behavior. This approach uses Motivational Interviewing and includes being compassionate, non-confrontational and non-judgmental. The effectiveness of this approach is that it engages and empowers students. This program encourages protective behaviors, and involves discussion of accidents, violence, sexual assault, sleep loss, poor academic performance, and future goals.
