Here are the type of presentations we offer:

  • Wildcat ROAR! Reach Out & Respond! (alcohol & other drugs; bystander intervention).
    The mission of the Wildcat ROAR! Reach Out & Respond! (Formerly Red Watch Band) Team is to provide campus community members with the knowledge, awareness, and skills to prevent student toxic drinking deaths and to promote a student culture of kindness, responsibility, compassion, and respect. The Wildcat ROAR movement is designed to end alcohol overdose deaths by teaching students and other campus community members how to handle alcohol emergencies and summon professional help. This program is helpful for students who are open to learning and willing to attend the training. These workshops are held regularly throughout the semester and open to all.

  • Risky Business (alcohol, other drugs, bystander intervention). 
    Risky Business is a 45-60 minute workshop designed to spread awareness about various high-risk drinking practices in which Chico State students rank significantly higher than the national collegiate averages. The presentation highlights pre-gaming, shots, and blacking out. This is a highly interactive program in which the students are participants in the facilitated conversation around high-risk alcohol use. This program is helpful for students who are open to attending the training.

  • Marijuana 101 and Motivational Interviewing (marijuana-focused). 
    Marijuana 101 is a non-judgmental, hands-on, how-to, (and how not to) guide to marijuana use and current marijuana trends. The goal of this program is to provide information so that student can make the choice that's right for them. The key to the success of this online educational program is that it is followed up by a 30-minute Motivational Interviewing session with the Prevention Coordinator or Lead Peer Educator. During the non-judgmental MI session the student and facilitator will check in about the student’s current marijuana use (if they are using), its effects and engage in a conversation about what they learned in the online program and ways to reduce risky behaviors.

  • Peer Educator Meeting (any substance). 
    CADEC's Peer Educators are trained in Motivational Interviewing and are a resource for students on the topic of substance misuse and recovery. Peer Educators are a support for students who are seeking information from a relatable and credible source. Peer Educators are also able to challenge the social norms around alcohol and other drugs in Chico State's community. Meeting with a Peer Educator can be a great starting place for students who have concerns or questions regarding alcohol and other drugs.

  • BASICS (alcohol-focused). 
    Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS): is a service for students in which they explore their alcohol use. BASICS is evidence-based and designed to assist students in examining their own substance use behaviors in a non-judgmental and non-confrontational environment. The goal of BASICS is to help students reduce risky behaviors and harmful effects from drinking. BASICS provides students with personalized feedback about their own alcohol use and compares the students’ alcohol use to other college students. BASICS gives students an opportunity to explore their level of risk, identify possible changes, and helps them to reduce their risk in developing future problems. BASICS can serve as a "check-up" on student.

  • How to Help a Friend Workshop.
    Join the Campus Alcohol and Drug Education Center Wellness Outreach Coordinator, Sadie LaBriere, in an interactive discussion on how to use active listening and non-defensive communication to express concern with friends, roommates and family members.
