The Haven at College is your provider
for BASICS and CASICS on USC campus.

BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Interview for College Students) and CASICS (Cannabis Screening and Interview for College Students) are designed to assist you in examining your drinking or cannabis use and other drug use behavior in a non-judgemental, non-confrontational manner. The program’s goal is to reduce risky behavior and the harmful consequences associated with high risk substance use by assisting you in selecting strategies that are best for you.

Your BASICS or CASICS experience will consist of first registering for two in-person sessions by clicking on the button below. Your first session will be 60 minutes with a trained provider to discuss your situation, including an online survey you will take at our office using one of our tablets. Your second session is typically a week after the first, a 60 minute session with the same provider to review your personalized feedback report. Right after that, your provider will sign off that you’ve completed BASICS or CASICS, if needed. Then you're done!

HOW TO REGISTER

  • Follow the "Book Appointment" link to our registration page
  • Select the best day and time for your appointments. Choose a day and time that works for both your first session and your second session the following week. We'll book the second session for you once you register for the first.
  • Look out for an email and text message reminder the day before each of your appointments.
  • Please note that there is a non-refundable $100 fee to register for both of your BASICS or CASICS sessions.
  • If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice or do not show up for your appointment, you will not be refunded.
