Welcome to Alcohol and Drug Education Program (ADEP)
The Alcohol and Drug Education Program (ADEP) at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) is committed to providing educational support services to the campus community and to create an atmosphere in which alcohol use is not the central focus of all social events. The program stresses choice, personal responsibility and understanding of consequences in deciding to use alcohol and/or other drugs. ADEP welcomes students in recovery, or those looking to explore their alcohol and other drug use, to utilize the programs and services offered, such as attending individual or group counseling. Programs and services provided by ADEP incorporate current, empirically supported approaches in order to effectively promote student health and wellness.

Through comedic storytelling, unique trust exercises, and engaging with students Bellace taught the importance of showing compassion for each other and ourselves through healthy decision making.
