Balancing Alcohol and Substances to Improve College Success (BASICS)
✔ No judgment
- BASICS is an individual, confidential conversation (usually 2 sessions) with a member of
the Alcohol and Drug Education staff.
- The conversation includes: typical alcohol/cannabis/drug use, information about alcohol/other
drugs, self-evaluation of use, how your use compares to other students.
- BASICS will help you evaluate alcohol/cannabis/drug use in relation to life goals,
health, and safety.
- BASICS is open to any student who wants to discuss alcohol or drug use, as well as
students referred due to a WCU Conduct sanction*
*BASICS does not fulfill requirements for a DUI evaluation or class.
Comments from Students who have Attended BASICS

training freshman year."

it to students even if they received no citation."
- "Helpful to be able to talk about issues in a closed environment. Thanks."
