Overview

The Addictions Counseling program prepares students to work with populations who are in recovery for various addictions (chemical and behavioral). Graduates are employed in addictions facilities, transition homes, inpatient and outpatient treatment centers, and other related facilities that focus on addictions treatment. The program includes coursework leading towards professional counselor licensure (LPC; http://www.njconsumeraffairs.gov/proc/) as well as certification for alcohol and drug counselors (CADC; http://www.state.nj.us/humanservices/das/workforce/career/).

The Addictions Counseling program consists of 60 credit hours, including 3 semesters of fieldwork. Full-time and part-time study are available for students, with most courses offered in the evenings and other arrangements to accommodate work schedules. Please note that students must have flexibility to complete the fieldwork experiences at an approved site during the latter portion of their time in the program. Full-time students can generally complete the 60 credit hour program in 2 ½ to 3 calendar years. Many core courses are offered in the summer session to facilitate timely completion of the degree.
