Substance Use Coaching

Substance use coaching (formerly known as Raider Restart) is a one-on-one discussion with a trained facilitator who works to guide a healthy, judgment-free conversation about one's substance use. Schedule a session for alcohol, cannabis, or BASICS coaching

This program is designed to provide individualized education for students about substance use and the impacts of alcohol and other drugs on one's health, wellness, and academic success. It aims to help students make safer, healthier choices and avoid the negative consequences substance use can bring.

This session is sanctioned by the Office of Student Conduct, and coaching is facilitated and managed by RISE. Please refer to your letter from Student Conduct when choosing your session.

RISE offers alcohol, cannabis, and BASICS coaching. BASICS is a $150 program consisting of two one-on-one discussions with a trained facilitator. If you are looking to schedule a BASICS appointment, choose the alcohol coaching session and indicate you are required to complete two sessions within the intake form.
