Voluntary in-person alcohol/drug interventions (also called BASICS Interventions) are available from IUPUI Health and Wellness Promotion. These two-part appointments provide screening, brief intervention, and possibly a referral to treatment. BASICS is a brief motivational enhancement intervention for individuals emphasizing personal responsibility and self-efficacy, offering personalized feedback on risks, expectancies, perceptions of social norms, and options for reducing problems and consequences.
BASICS is not a psychological assessment, and does not diagnose or treat a substance use disorder or other mental health concerns.
These appointments are sometimes used to complete sanctions from the Office of Student Conduct. Sanction appointments incur a charge of $200 because of the additional administrative reporting requirements, but voluntary appointments (not the result of a sanction) are free for IUPUI students.
