Individual Support and Campus Resources

Individual Support

Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) Consultations: Student Counseling Services staff provide confidential consultation, assessment, support, and referral services for students experiencing a substance use concern.

Smoking Cessation: Smoking cessation services are available within at Student Health Services. This is a conjoint effort between Student Counseling and Health Services. Intervention may include consultation with a Counseling Services clinician (behavioral coaching) and medical support from a Health Services provider (medication options such as Zyban or Chantix). Nicotine replacement therapies such as the patch, gum, or lozenges may be purchased over-the-counter.

To schedule an AOD or smoking cessation consultation appointment, please contact Student Counseling Services at (626) 395-8331 or stop by the front office (room 140) to schedule an appointment.

Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) Presentations

Group presentations can be a wonderful opportunity to receive educational resources in a casual setting, while making a personal connection (“putting a face with the name”) with the facilitator/presenter. Current AOD presentations include:

  • Think Before You Drink - Making Smart Choices (Alcohol)
  •  Just Say No - Marijuana & the College Experience (Marijuana)
  • Other Drugs - (Hallucinogens, Stimulants, & Beyond)

These presentations/workshops include information on supporting a student in need (peer assistance approaches). These workshops also include interactive activities such as “Walk the Line” & the Standard Drink Challenge.

Looking for a presentation on a different AOD-related topic? With prior notification (typically a few weeks in advance), Student Counseling Services will work to construct a workshop that fits the particular needs of your group.

If you would like to request a presentation for your house, group, or club/organization, please fill out the Outreach Request Form.


AlcoholEdu is an online education program that helps prepare students for the unique challenges and responsibilities of college life. It addresses issues related to alcohol, drugs, and sexual misconduct. It also provides important information regarding Caltech policies and available resources.

Although all incoming undergraduate students are required to complete this assessment, you may find it helpful to return to your portal and review “Resources” on an as-needed basis. The Resources tab includes an exhaustive list of campus and online resources that can be utilized for prevention, education, and support.

If you are interested in obtaining access to the AlcoholEdu program, please contact Student Counseling Services by calling (626) 395-8331.
