Community Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) offers early intervention support for individuals who need help with alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs.

SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment)

This is a one-on-one intervention lasting up to 30 minutes. It focuses on raising awareness about substance use and its consequences and motivating participants towards positive change. It encourages participants to think differently about their use. High-risk users are provided with referrals to treatment. Cost: $75.

Focus on Alcohol & Cannabis (FAC)

This program is for young adults and consists of three two-hour small group sessions led by a counselor. Students participate in group activities and discussions about their current patterns of substance use, the risks involved, and harm-reduction strategies they can use to decrease personal risk. Topics include weekly review of use versus abuse and the biology of alcohol intake and metabolism. Cost $150.


The Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) program consists of two one-hour individual sessions with a counselor. The student provides a personal drug and alcohol history and completes screenings to assess his/her risk level and pattern of use. During the second session, students receive personalized feedback from the screenings to help identify risks and protective factors, and the counselor leads the students through a brief discussion about what they may be ready to change with regard to their substance use. Cost $200.


Drinking as Responsible Mature Adults (DARMA) is a 12-hour class that meets over 6 weeks. The program is based on the curriculum developed for the Alcohol Skills Training Program (ASTP) researched at the University of Washington. This is a moderation-oriented program for non-dependent drinkers in which students monitor their daily alcohol use. Cost $295.
