BASICS and CASICS
BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students) and CASICS (Cannabis Screening and Intervention for College Students) are nationally renowned and peer reviewed programs designed specifically for college students to help them explore, in a non-judgemental, non-confrontational, and confidential environment, their decisions around alcohol and/or cannabis use.
The Alcohol & Other Drugs Educator provides BASICS/CASICS conversations for current students. If you would like to learn more about BASICS/CASICS, please visit the BASICS webpage.
