Alcohol and Drug Services
The University Counseling Center (UCC) is fully accredited to provide counseling for alcohol and other drug use. Our addiction counselors are available for a range of services to students.
Substance use services generally begin with an intake assessment to determine the degree of presenting concerns and appropriate plans for addressing concerns. Upon hearing your concerns, we'll help you establish goals and makes changes to reduce the likelihood of further problems or concern.
Substance Use Prevention Education Services
Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS)
Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) is an interactive process for students to examine their substance use in a non-judgmental setting. BASICS is designed to engage students in reflecting on the risks related to substance use and offer goals for students to make better decisions so as to prevent future problems.
Students participating BASICS will complete an online self-assessment and education program and have an individualized follow up session with a BASICS provider.
Instructions for students completing BASICS:
- Visit und.edu/echeckup and select "I have not completed eCheckup previously."
- Write down your twelve digit UID number at the top of the screen. You will need this to schedule your appointment.
- Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the e-Checkuptogo online module (20-30 minutes).
- Call the UND Counseling Center at 777.2127 to schedule a one hour individual meeting with a BASICS provider. You will provide them with the UID number at the time that you make the appointment.
Student Chemical Assessment and Review Program (SCARP)
Student Chemical Assessment and Review Program (SCARP) is an intervention program to help students identify, engage, and address high-risk substance use. The goal is to encourage students to move in the direction of reducing risky behaviors and harmful effects from substance use and identifying personal risk factors. SCARP is conducted over the course of three sessions (one initial individual session, one intervention/experiential class, and one follow-up individual session).
A through but brief assessment intended to give a student a recommendation that suites their needs.
- If this is a referral from the University of North Dakota and you are choosing to have the UCC do the evaluation, a recommendation will be given at the end of the assessment. It will be up to you as the individual to follow through with the recommendations from the assessment.
- If you choose to do an evaluation with a private provider, a full evaluation will be required and you must follow all recommendations from the evaluator.
The UCC provides chemical dependency evaluation for UND students, conducted by licensed addition counselors. A fee may be charged for court ordered alchohol and drug evaluations.
Students who have a substance use disorder may benefit from outpatient treatment services. The UCC offers individualized outpatient treatment services in combination of group and individual sessions.
