BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students) is an evidence-based 1-on-1 intervention for high-risk college students. We have piloted and implemented a hybrid model that uses the principles of BASICS while reducing administrative burden and capitalizing on social norms by incorporating a group session. The initial group session fosters discussion and challenges social norms, while the follow-up individual session uses motivational interviewing techniques tailored to the student's drinking behaviors. We will present the process we undertook to adapt the evidence-based intervention, the challenges in implementation, and the development of process and outcome evaluation tools.
