• Alcohol & Drug Counselor

    Career Pathway Certificate

    The Alcohol & Drug Counselor Pathway Certificate prepares students to sit for the certification examination offered by the Addiction Counselor Certification Board. The coursework is appropriate both for new students to the field, and those wishing to update their skills or seek additional certification.
