Three Tiers of Service Provision

CAPS provides alcohol and other drug services to actively enrolled Purdue University students. These services may satisfy university and/or legal sanctions, or provide support for students as they seek help for a substance abuse problem.

Tier Two

Services for students seeking help for substance abuse

Individual and group therapy services are offered. These sessions provide the opportunity for students to address concerns they may have regarding their substance use. However, therapy services of this nature cannot be substituted for any court ordered or university sanctioned programs. Therapists will not write letters for court related issues.

Tier Three

Referrals for more intensive addiction treatment services

Students who require addiction treatment, which is more intensive than what can be offered through CAPS brief therapy model, are referred to an outside agency. CAPS does not provide detox services. In these cases, CAPS will help facilitate referral to an appropriate program in Lafayette or Indianapolis.
