What to Expect

BASICS is administered by trained graduate students who have clinical experience and are working under the supervision of a licensed psychologist. The BASICS program consists of a two hour group workshop and a 45-60 minute individual follow-up session. The group workshop covers topics such as the size of standard drinks, BAC content, factors that influence BAC, tolerance, alcohol poisoning, associated risky behaviors, and legal consequences. At the end of the group session, students fill out questionnaires on alcohol use that are then used to provide personalized feedback in the follow-up session. The information in these surveys is kept strictly confidential.

The individual follow-up session is designed to give feedback to each student and help him or her to assess personal drinking habits and identify any areas for potential change.

How Much Does BASICS Cost?

The BASICS program charges $125 to all students who are referred for alcohol or marijuana violations.

There is a $40.00 non-refundable fee if you do not keep your BASICS group or individual appointment.
