BASICS is a screening program for alcohol and other drug use/abuse. This program assists students to identify their patterns of use and the risk factors associated with those patterns. Students work with a staff member on ideas of how to reduce their risk and implement their harm reduction strategy. Most students who attend BASICs are then able to manage their plan on their own, but Duke Student Wellness Center provides ongoing support as needed.
