Alcohol and Drug Counseling Services
Confidential drug and alcohol-related evaluations and outpatient services are provided at FAU’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at no additional charge to enrolled FAU students. Students may be mandated for evaluation by various FAU departments. Evaluations typically require one to two sessions with a licensed Certified Addictions Professional. Students may also be seen for outpatient substance use counseling or referred elsewhere, as appropriate.
Please be aware that the FAU CAPS does not conduct court-mandated drug/alcohol evaluations or counseling.
