  • Memory loss (blackouts, brownouts, fade outs)
  • Frequent intoxication

If you would like to explore your alcohol or other drug use privately in a non-judgmental environment, please make an appointment with the BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students) or the Individual Marijuana Education Program (IMEP).  For other drug concerns, contact Marsha Benz at (734) 647-4656.  Conversations are relaxed and confidential.
