Gannett offers a wide variety of services that are sensitive to the challenges that university students face regarding alcohol and other drug use. We provide services for students who want to learn more about their own use of alcohol and other drugs, reduce or eliminate their use, or are worried about a friend or family member’s use or dependency. In addition, the Cornell and Ithaca community are home to many self help groups and treatment facilities.  

If there is a particular service that you are looking for that does not appear on this list, please contact Kirsten Post Eynav, Community Health Educator, at Gannett. 

Services include BASICS, individual counseling, and groups related to alcohol and marijuana use.  

You will also find lots of information about alcohol and other drugs on this web site.
