Intervention Services

ATOD Intervention Services works to empower students to make healthy and responsible choices concerning use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. No-use and low-risk behaviors are supported while the realities of the negative consequence of high-risk use are addressed. Strategies to reduce ATOD-related barriers to academic and social success are primary intervention goals.

    This assessment is designed to assist students in examining their drinking and other drug behavior(s) in a judgment-free environment. The student selects his or her goals to reduce risky behaviors and the harmful consequences of drinking or using other drugs. Some students attend BASICS to fulfill a requirement as a result of an alcohol or marijuana-related offense, while others participate because they would like to learn moderation strategies to reduce negative consequences from drinking or using marijuana.

    Part 1: The student can expect to complete an assessment of his or her alcohol, marijuana, or other drug consumption patterns, history and related issues. This assessment is completed before the student meets with the ATOD Intervention Services Coordinator. The assessment is completely confidential.

    Part 2: Personalized feedback is provided based on assessments during a confidential one-on-one meeting with the ATOD Intervention Services Coordinator and focuses on ways the student might choose to reduce future health, social and legal risks.
