WFU BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students) is available online to all WFU students (undergrad, grad, law, etc.).

BASICS is a free and private evidence-based and supportive meeting to help people think about changes that they might want to make to their drug and/or alcohol use.

In BASICS meetings, students meet 1:1 with a trained professional and receive personalized feedback on their drinking and/or drug use. BASICS staff help students to think about their relationship to drugs and/or alcohol and set goals for ways in which they might like to change those behaviors. This approach is based on the evidence-based style of communication called Motivational Interviewing and which is rooted in person-centered principles of compassion, acceptance, partnership, and evocation. The effectiveness of this approach is that it engages and empowers students. E-mail today to make a private appointment.
