Online Screening

Online Self-Assessment

360 Proof's Personalized Feedback Index (PFI) is a confidential online tool designed to help you consider the personal impact of your alcohol use and explore strategies to reduce any alcohol-related harms you may be experiencing. The PFI takes 10-15 minutes to complete.

In-Person Screening

BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students)

A 2-session program that walks you through conversations that illuminate your social habits and patterns, such as:

  • your relationships with friends
  • how your social behaviors compare with other MIT students
  • what role your alcohol use plays within these contexts

This is a private, non-judgmental conversation that emphasizes your health and safety. You will not get in trouble for underage alcohol use or illegal drug use. You can decide what, if anything, you’d like to change, and we'll help you develop a plan to meet your goals.
