Brief Alcohol Screening Intervention for College Students (BASICS) is an individual interview process conducted over two 90 minute meetings designed to discuss a student's drinking habits and assist the student in making informed decisions regarding his/her alcohol consumption.

BASICS does not require abstinence, but assists a student in assessing the risks associated with his/her personal drinking, deciding if changes need to be made, and creating a plan to accomplish those goals. The choice on whether to make change is completely up to the student.

BASICS interviews are confidential.

To schedule a BASICS interview, contact the Health Promotion office by calling 979.845.0280.
