AlcoholEdu & Haven for College, are two online science-based courses used on over 500 campuses nationwide. AlcoholEdu provides detailed information about alcohol and its effects on the body and mind. Whether you drink or not, the goals of the course are to help you make well-informed decisions about alcohol and address the drinking behavior of your peers. Haven will provide information to help you identify, react, respond to, and assist with preventing sexual assault and relationship violence. Haven will also help you learn about healthy relationships, the importance of consent and being a good communicator, and the many ways you can help create a safe and positive campus environment.
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.
