On- and Off-Campus Resources

A number of professional resources are available at Princeton, in the surrounding area, and elsewhere for individuals struggling with alcohol, cannabis or other drug 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 students can discuss your alcohol and/or cannabis use, explore the effects, and plan how they might reduce risks due to alcohol and/or cannabis use.
  • 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.
  • Recovery@ is a resource for students who are either in recovery from drugs and alcohol or who are in trouble from drugs and alcohol. It is an organic group started by students and two administrators who were and are in recovery. They gather once a month to discuss the particular challenges of recovery at Princeton University. All discussions are confidential. To obtain more information email a confidential email, recovery@princeton.edu.
