Admission into the program is not required for ADX 300, 301, 309 & 311.
The Certificate Program in Alcohol/Drug Counseling consists of eleven (11) courses designed to prepare individuals for entry into the substance abuse counseling field at a professional level. The certificate is widely recognized by alcohol treatment centers. Abuse of many kinds of substances is covered, including alcohol, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and pcp. Also covered are process addiction (such as eating disorders, gambling, and sex addictions) and domestic violence.
Students may enter the program in either the Fall or Spring Semester. Applicants should have completed at least two years of college or have at least two years of work experience in a health or human service agency. If the applicant is a recovering substance abuser, two years of continuous sobriety is required. Prospective students must complete an application form and supply transcripts and letters of recommendation.
Upon satisfactory completion of all 11 (eleven) courses with a 2.5 grade point average, and 300 hours of field work, the student will receive a Certificate as recognition of educational achievement and professional status. The Certificate is widely recognized by alcoholism treatment centers. Students who successfully complete the certificate are eligible to apply for the CATC Basic Credential through California Association for Alcohol/Drug Educators (CAADE) and for the RADT-I Credential through California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals (CCAPP).
Coursework must be completed within five years of beginning the program.
