There are several self-assessment tools you can find online to give you an idea about how alcohol and other substances impact your life. University Health and Counseling Services provides access two fully anonymous self-assessments:
eCHECKUP TO GO
The eCHECKUP TO GO programs are personalized, evidence-based, online prevention interventions for alcohol and marijuana developed by counselors and psychologists at San Diego State University.
Drawing on motivational interviewing (Miller & Rollnick, 2002) and social norms theory (Perkins & Berkowitz, 1986), these programs are designed to motivate individuals to reduce or eliminate alcohol and/or marijuana use based upon personalized information and risk factors. The programs were designed and updated with the most current and reliable research available. They are currently being used at more than 550 universities and colleges across 49 states and in Canada, Australia and Ireland.
The ScreenU programs are new web-based programs which utilize evidence-based approaches to identify, reduce and prevent problematic substance use, misuse and dependence. These programs administers screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) to college students. ScreenU identifies students who are misusing alcohol or prescription drugs and provides feedback and strategies to reduce their risk for experiencing negative consequences from their use. The screenings have been designed to be brief, lasting only 5-10 minutes and do not require staff to be administered. The screenings are anonymous but completion can be tracked, if necessary.
University Health and Counseling Services knows how important it is for students to have the facts about their own use. Both eCHECKUP and ScreenU are anonymous surveys you can take on your own; but we encourage you to schedule a confidential appointment with a counselor at the UCS about your results.
