On- and Off-Campus Resources
A number of professional resources are available at Princeton and in the surrounding area for individuals struggling with alcohol use.
On-Campus Resources for All Students
- Counseling and Psychological Services. While anyone at CPS is trained to talk to you or your friend, CPS does have a team specifically focused on alcohol and other drug use. Remember, CPS is a confidential resource, and anything you or a friend share with a practitioner there is not shared with your dean or your parents.
- BASICS is a confidential education program, free and available to all students, where you can discuss your alcohol use, explore the effects of your drinking, and plan how you might reduce your risks due to alcohol.
- Group counseling at CPS. There are groups that meet to discuss alcohol and other substance use. Check out the website for a list of current groups offered.
- Alcoholics Anonymous has a number of meetings in the Princeton area, both on and off campus. The local branch of AA is called Central Jersey Intergroup. The AA hotline phone number is 609-298-7795. All AA meetings maintain anonymity of the attendees.
- Corner House Counseling Center provides a number of drug- and alcohol-related services to Princeton students, including treatment and prevention programs. To speak with its staff or make a referral, call 609-924-8018.
- Al-Anon/Alateen provides help to families and friends of alcoholics. There are many groups held throughout New Jersey.
