Did You Know!?!?!?!!
California University’s Alcohol and Other Drug programs are based in Carter Hall G-45. Intervention and Prevention comprise the operational components of Cal U’s AOD Programs in the interest of students’ wellness.
Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) and Cannabis Screening and Intervention for College Students (CASICS) are preventive intervention programs to reduce risky behaviors and the harmful consequences of alcohol and marijuana use. BASICS targets students who are considered at risk because of heavy drinking behaviors; and CASICS targets to reduce risky behaviors and the harmful consequences of marijuana use.
The brief intervention relies primarily on a motivational interview to provide students with skills, knowledge, and insight into the consequences of drinking.
Participation is open to any Cal U student. Students who have been cited by the Office of Student Conduct or University Housing for violations of the Student Code of Conduct involving the use of alcohol and/or other drugs are required to participate.
