The Addiction Counseling certificate program at SUNY JCC is designed for students who are pursuing or already hold a college degree in human services, social work, or a related field and are seeking credentials in the field of alcohol, substance abuse and other addiction treatment. Graduates of the program will fulfill New York State’s educational requirements for a CASAC-TR license.

Students in the program will develop knowledge of the nature and history of addiction and chemical dependency, and learn skills needed for intake assessment, treatment planning, case management, individual and group counseling. Students will participate in a fieldwork experience, which provides 135 hours of practical, supervised field experience in an addictions agency.
