Interested in assessing your relationship with alcohol and other drugs?

There are a number of ways to learn about the impact of alcohol and other drugs in your life and to gain more of an understanding of the role they play. We offer anonymous assessments where you can have a personal report created for you within twenty minutes online. If this interests you click on Alcohol e-CheckUp ToGo or Marijuana e-CheckUpToGo . You can also make an appointment to see a CEASE counselor for a three session assessment by calling the Counseling and Psychological Services at (415) 338-2208 and asking for a CEASE appointment.


There is help on campus for students, staff and faculty negatively impacted. If you would like to learn more about the resources available to you on and off campus please visit Resources.
