Want to cut down or quit vaping? The Center for Health Promotion can help!

Students have expressed growing concerns about vaping, given the recent public health alerts by the CDC that link vaping with serious lung injuries. Some students started experimenting in high school with juuling and/or vaping THC. They never expected, this behavior to become problematic, and are realizing that it's tough to make a change. If you're considering either reducing or cutting out vaping altogether, the IC Center for Health Promotion can help you figure out strategies that will work best for you!

Our services include:

  • BASICS (Balancing Alcohol & Substance Use To Improve College Success). BASICS involves nonjudgmental, in-person sessions to explore your use pattern and identify strategies for change. Meetings are free and confidential.
  • THRIVE Wellness Coaching. Wellness coaching sessions are similar to BASICS, with an exploration of strategies to address the many dimensions of wellness. Topics for conversation may include sleep, eating well, stress management, and others.
  • Pick up a free Quit Kit in our Health Promotion Resource Room. Each Quit Kit includes some simple tools and informational resources to help you get started on reducing or quitting smoking or vaping. The Resource Room also offers a quiet place for reflection, use of light-therapy units, coloring books and bubbles, a Buddha Board (water painting), free condoms and other safer sex supplies, and free health pamphlets and brochures.

Drop by our Health Promotion Resource Room, Monday-Friday 8:30am - 5:00pm. No appointment necessary! We're located on the lower level of the health center (down the hallway from CAPS).

For a confidential BASICS or Wellness Coaching appointment, simply send an email with your availability to or call 607-274-7933.




Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Nancy Reynolds at or (607) 274-7933.. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.
