CASE (College Alcohol and Substance Education) is an educational program in which participants attend weekly groups and have the opportunity to reflect on their college experience, increase self-awareness, and work toward enhancing overall wellness and safety. Participants will have the opportunity to share thoughts and experiences, and engage in discussions about important and relevant topics pertaining to alcohol, cannabis and other drugs, and college life in general. Emphasis is placed on safety, personal responsibility for self and others, health, and wellbeing. Information about drugs and alcohol, including risks and risk-reduction strategies, is woven into the group discussions. CASE is offered to mandated UCSB students, as well as those who are self-referred or referred by other campus professionals.
