As the Yellow Wood Commission uses an evidence-based approach to understand and address Wheaton’s alcohol challenges, we work to develop programs and initiatives that can have an immediate positive impact.
- BASICS, Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students is a 2-session harm reduction approach for reducing high risk drinking among Wheaton students. It utilizes motivational interviewing techniques and personalized feedback to provide education in a non-judgmental, non-confrontational setting. If you or someone you know might benefit from BASICS, call Emily Dimon, Health Educator, at (508) 286-5654.

- Wheaton Life Watch, a bystander-intervention training program which combines CPR training, strategies for safe alcohol use, and information on recognizing alcohol poisoning and potentially life-threatening situations.
