Cannabis Screening & Intervention

Cannabis Screening & Intervention (CSI) is a brief intervention program for students who have violated the drug policy at the University of Tennessee and meet criteria for being at higher risk. The Center for Health Education & Wellness staff conducts CSI in two one-on-one meetings with students. Motivational Interviewing techniques are the foundation for CSI to meet students where they are to elicit change. The purpose of these meetings is to assess current pattern of use, engage students in a dialogue about their use, and provide resources. During these sessions, the student completes the online eCHECKUP TO GO – Cannabis assessment.

Students are typically sanctioned to complete these sessions as a part of a drug violation; however, any student may volunteer to meet with the Wellness Coordinator due to concerns or questions regarding their personal use of cannabis.
