Although alcohol plays an important social role in many cultures, it can be dangerous if misused. For those who choose to drink, we offer the following tools to help you manage your relationship with alcohol.

Alcohol Skills Training Program

New Mizzou undergrads are required to participate in the Alcohol Skills Training Program (ASTP) prior to the start of their first semester. Information will be e-mailed to you during the summer or winter intercession. Request a well-being program.


Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) is designed to help you understand your alcohol or cannabis use and to reduce risky behaviors and harmful consequences. If you have been referred to this service due to a conduct violation or medical follow up, you will receive a referral within the MU Connect system.

Brief Substance Use Consultation

Explore your use habits and consider both benefits and challenges associated with use. If you decide you would like to make some changes, we can help you set realistic goals and work toward them. Schedule an appointment with a BASICS coordinator in MU Connect or call our office at 573-882-4634.

Behavioral health screening

The behavioral health screening offers symptom screening for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, substance use disorders and a general well-being screening. Information about resources is offered based on your responses.

Learn on your own

We offer on-demand information about many aspects of well-being. Look for the alcohol module in Canvas (login required).
