Services The Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Prevention Programming Office offers a wide variety of services including: Education Prevention Alcohol and other drug assessment/evaluation Short term intervention Counseling Referrals This office coordinates with many other campus and community programs to create a healthy environment for students to study, work and play in. They provide programs, activities and support services to encourage individuals and groups to make low risk, responsible choices; ones that will optimize their personal and academic success and enhance their time at UCF.
Real Student Assistance Confidential screening and assessment is available for students who are interested in feedback regarding risk and protective factors associated with their self-reported AOD use. Students who have violated campus alcohol and other drug policies and/or have been referred for alcohol and other drug violations with law enforcement are also seen in the office. They strive to help students make the most of their college experience.
Brief Intervention Trained graduate students from Psychology and/or Social Work programs provide brief intervention services, under the supervision of a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Assessment services provide students with the opportunity to meet with a trained clinical provider in a confidential face-to-face session. During the session, students receive individualized screening and feedback on a variety of substance-related behaviors that are designed to inform the student about personalized risk and protective factors, as well as behaviors that can help maximize their health and safety. BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening for College Students) is an individually-delivered alcohol abuse prevention program for college students that is empirically supported by rigorous research.
