Substance Abuse and Addictions Counseling

The CAPS Center provides substance abuse or addiction counseling services. These services may include screening and assessment, individual counseling, or group counseling.

In addition to substances (e.g., alcohol, marijuana, nicotine, etc.), addiction counseling may also address other process addictions (e.g., gambling, sex, shopping) that may interfere with responsibilities or concerns, such as academics, work, relationships, or health.

Sometimes students may have substance dependence or addiction issues that require more intensive services than those offered at the CAPS Center. In these circumstances, students will be referred to off-campus treatment programs in the community that provide those specialized services. The CAPS Center does not provide any court-mandated drug education classes, assessments, evaluations, or court-mandated treatment services.

Appointments for substance abuse or addictions counseling may be made during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) by contacting the CAPS Center ( or 570-674-6408) or visiting us (lower level of McGowan Hall).
