Counseling, Alcohol and Other Drug Assistance Program & Psychiatric Services (CAPS) was created in September, 2006, by joining the major mental health services on campus into one organization, as part of the Rutgers Health Service. CAPS now includes Counseling Services, Alcohol and Other Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) and Psychiatric Services.


CAPS is dedicated to serving the students and faculty at Rutgers – New Brunswick by providing comprehensive mental health services to the campus community. CAPS strives to provide services that are designed to help students reach and maintain a positive, productive university experience, ranging from various counseling services, educational and preventive initiatives, training programs, outreach and consultation activities, and to provide guidance on how to contribute to a caring healthy community. As specialists in working with undergraduate and graduate students, we can help students address whatever it is that may be of concern to them. We will do our best to ensure that students get their needs met, through a CAPS group, individual counseling, or a referral to another community resource.
