Programs & Services

Students rejoicing

Our mission is to provide prevention education, healthy living, and learning opportunities in order to sustain a wellness-focused environment that further develops academics and success for students of Colorado State University Pueblo. 

HEP has developed many new and exciting educational programming opportunities with the goal of implementing and sustaining additional and multiple educational health and wellness programs. These programs will provide prevention and intervention education in regards to alcohol and other drugs and will foster an inclusive health and wellness model for the campus community. 

Group presentations are available for student clubs, organizations, residence hall communities, fraternities, sororities, classrooms, and other workgroups.

Some students may be mandated to complete an assessment and educational intervention track with the HEP Prevention Coordinator as a result of violating the Alcohol and Other Drug Policy.



Individual Services



    Multi-tiered assessment is available for CSU Pueblo students. Assessment appointments will include the completion of assessment tools, a structured interview with the HEP Prevention Coordinator, and recommendation for available interventions.


    CHOICES Educational Intervention

    The HEP provides monthly CHOICES educational intervention for students interested in making behavioral change with low to moderate alcohol use.


    BASICS Behavioral Intervention

    This two-session intervention is structured to provide students with a brief screening and motivational interviewing session to provide behavioral change for students with moderate to heavy drinking.


    Other Drug Behavioral Intervention

    Structured similarly to the BASICS intervention, this two-session service is structured to provide brief screening and motivational interviewing in order to facilitate behavioral change for students with low to moderate use of substances.



    Not all students will be appropriate for work with the HEP. In the event that the use of alcohol or other drugs is beyond the scope of care, individuals will be referred to other on-campus and off-campus programs for assistance.

Group Services


    Bystander Intervention Training (1 hour and 30 minutes)

    This formal session helps student leaders recognize the signs of over-consumption and how to accurately respond to possible alcohol poisoning. Participants will engage in short role-plays to practice techniques in responding with intoxicated individuals.

    Watch Session


    Alcohol Use and You (20 minutes)

    Want to introduce alcohol education, but not sure you have the time for it? The HEP offers a compressed educational session to cover how alcohol reacts to the body when consumed, recognizing the signs of alcohol poisoning, and resources on-campus. This is a perfect program idea for existing meetings where you'd like to include a brief alcohol education session.
