### Description

The production rates of heavy quarkonia states in A-A collisions provide sensitive probes to the hot and dense QGP. However, a reference for understanding the dissociation in the hot medium is necessary; p-A collisions open the possibility to study heavy quarkonia states in a smaller system. This is an important step in forming a baseline for understanding A-A collisions, as well as an investigation into the nature of modifications of the parton distributions in the nucleus. Using data collected at the LHC in 2013, the ATLAS experiment will show results on the prompt J/psi and psi(2S) nuclear modification factors and the double ratio, psi(2S) divided by J/Psi in p-Pb divided by the same in p-p, in p-Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV. The charmonia states were reconstructed via the dimuon decay channel and the yield will be differentially presented in bins of transverse momentum, rapidity, and event activity.
