Student Assistance Program (SAP) / Substance Abuse

WVU’s Student Assistance Program offers an array of services for students with alcohol or other drug concerns, including individual assessment, individual and group counseling, and educational activities. Students interested in receiving alcohol or other drug counseling may contact the Carruth Center (304-293-4431) to schedule an appointment. Self-referrals are welcomed. Students who seek SAP services are required to participate in an intake/evaluation by the SAP staff.

Groups suspended due to COVID-19

To mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and to best protect the campus community, all psychoeducational group sessions offered by the Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services have been temporarily suspended.  SAP will work with your referral sources to extend deadlines. Please email us at if you have any questions or to discuss your treatment options.
