SIGN UP

What to expect

BASICS and CASICS are services provided by The Longhorn Wellness Center and are non-judgmental, non-labeling, and not abstinence based.

Both BASICS and CASICS involve two, 50-minute virtual meetings and you will receive a personalized report and certificate of completion at the end. The meetings are private.

Meeting 1 Meeting 2

During meeting 1, you and a small group of peers will meet with a facilitator and set expectations, get an overview of the BASICS or CASICS programs and engage in two interactive group activities.

During meeting 2, you meet one on one with your facilitator to review your personalized report which really focuses on your experience with alcohol or cannabis. Resources are provided for continued support.
