Other Drugs

Other drugs such as cocaine, club drugs, ketamine, and more also come with health risks. With information and awareness, students may feel empowered to either practice harm reduction, live substance-free, or enter recovery.

Intervention and Support​​

BASICS is provided to any student on an individual basis, and sometimes BASICS is mandated for students who have violated the alcohol and/or drug policies of the Code of Student Responsibility. BASICS is also offered to students who may benefit from learning more about their use/misuse. BASICS is an effective, holistic, and evidence-based intervention for helping students reduce risky behaviors and typically involves two one-hour individual sessions. In the sessions, students will learn helpful information related to safety around alcohol and other drugs in the body, drug interaction risks, and harm reduction strategies. While BASICS was originally created to focus on alcohol, HPW offers BASICS in a holistic way to address any and all substance use.
