BASICS is a preventative and evidence-based intervention for college students from 18 to 24 years old. It targets students who drink alcohol heavily and have experienced or are at risk for alcohol-related problems such as poor class attendance, missed assignments, accidents, sexual assault, and violence.  

BASICS is designed to help students make better alcohol-use decisions based on a clear understanding of the genuine risks associated with problem drinking, enhanced motivation to change, and the development of skills to moderate drinking.

The BASICS program uses a harm-reduction approach designed to:

  • Help you explore your alcohol use in a non-judgmental setting
  • Reduce risky behavior and harmful consequences of alcohol abuse
  • Identify changes that could help you reduce your risk
  • Provide important information and skills for risk reduction

The BASICS program consists of two one-hour sessions with a trained facilitator. The first session will be focused on introducing the student to the program, assessing the student's level of risk of alcohol-related problems, and obtaining the commitment to monitor drinking between the two sessions. During the second session, the student will be given a personalized feedback sheet containing information on the frequency of drinking, quantity of alcohol consumed, estimates of typical and highest-reported blood-alcohol content, and comparisons with student drinking norms.
