BASICS-Are you concerned about your drinking or drug use or is someone else concerned about your drinking?
Would you like to receive a CONFIDENTIAL drinking evaluation and personal feedback about your drinking?
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 advice. The primary goal of BASICS is to provide objective lifestyle feedback and to encourage positive changes in drinking behavior. This approach uses Motivational Interviewing and includes being empathic, 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.
For more information regarding BASICS, please contact Thrive@nullwfu.edu.
Concerned about you or a friend’s substance use, take a free screening, and contact email@example.com to discuss your screening results.
