BASICS is not...
During your BASICS appointment you will meet with your BASICS facilitator (a staff member at The Well) to discuss your alcohol and/or marijuana use and strategies for reducing harm. During your first session you will also fill out a comprehensive online assessment about your experiences with alcohol and/or marijuana. During your second session you will go over your responses to this assessment with your facilitator.
If you are interested in participating in BASICS, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. A staff member will respond to your request and walk you through the process.
If you are required to attend, a staff member will register you in the online BASICS system. You will receive an e-mail with your login information and instructions for accessing the BASICS Student Portal to schedule your sessions. If you have misplaced your login information please email email@example.com.
You will schedule both your first and second session at the same time. We strongly recommend that you do not reschedule your initial appointments. There are a limited number of appointments, and students who attempt to reschedule may not be able to find a new appointment that meets their administrative or conduct deadline for completion.
BASICS sessions are confidential. The only information a referrer will receive is whether or not a student completed the program.
If a student decides to attend BASICS on their own, there is no fee.
If a student is mandated to attend BASICS:
Anyone who arrives more than 10 minutes late for a session will be required to reschedule.
Confidentiality is an important aspect of the program and the information discussed during a session will not be shared. While BASICS sessions are confidential, information may be disclosed with a student's consent to appropriate administrators and health care professionals as needed. Furthermore, confidentiality cannot be upheld if a student indicates harm to self or others.
BASICS sessions are held in The Well offices at The Health Center, Uptown - Building 92.
