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.
