• 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. The certificate provides the 150 educational hours required by the certification board. Students can also opt to add a CWE component that will partially fulfill the 1000 required practicum hours. Qualifying for the CADC I certificate is a stepping stone for students who want to work now, but may also be thinking of pursuing further education in the future. More information about certification can be found at www.accbo.com
