The Alcohol EDU program consists of two parts that includes a pre-test and a post-test section.

BASICS

The Brief Alcohol Screening & Intervention for College Students (BASICS) program is designed to reduce harmful consumption and associated problems among students who drink alcohol. The program consists of two one on one 50-minute sessions. The first session assesses consumption patterns and reviews the negative consequences that one can encounter from excessive drinking. The student is provided with personalized feedback and goals are set to reduce future risks associated with alcohol use. These goals are reviewed and possibly revised in the second meeting as guided feedback is provided and the student creates a long-term plan on ways to make changes in drinking patterns and to reduce the negative consequences associated with alcohol use. Students will be provided 60 days to complete.

An alcohol/drug assessment is an evaluation by a certified professional mental health practitioner that is licensed by the state of Arkansas to administer alcohol/drug assessments. The selection of the practitioner is the choice of the student. For a complete list of local places, contact the Office of Student Standards and Conduct. Following completion of the assessment, the agency conducting the assessment will make a recommendation regarding the course of treatment that best fits the outcome of the assessment. It is the responsibility of the student to complete all recommendations and provide documentation of completion for both the outcome of the assessment and the recommended course of treatment. Students will be provided 30 days to complete the assessment, and the deadline for the course of treatment deadline will be based on practitioner recommendations.
