If you have concerns about your alcohol use, we highly recommend that you contact the Office of Alcohol Policy and Education (OAPE) about drinking on college campuses.
CAPS provides substance abuse assessments, brief individual therapy, and/or referrals for all students concerned about their substance use. Our goal is to provide a collaborative and non-judgmental environment to openly explore alcohol and/or other drug use. Using the principles of motivational interviewing, CAPS therapists emphasize partnerships that respect your expertise, values, perspectives, and intrinsic motivation. Services are designed to meet individualized needs.
CAPS does not provide court mandated therapy. As with all mental health services, CAPS substance abuse services are strictly confidential.
Students interested in an evaluation should contact CAPS at 650-723-3785 to schedule an intake appointment.
These sites include a variety of resources explaining how drugs work and why people use them.
