Human Services Technology – Substance Abuse
The Human Services Technology/Substance Abuse concentration prepares students to assist in drug and alcohol counseling, prevention-oriented educational activities, rehabilitation with recovering clients, managing community-based programs, counseling in residential facilities, and pursuit of four-year degrees.
Coursework includes classroom and experiential activities oriented toward an overview of chemical dependency, psychological/sociological process, the twelve Core Functions, intervention techniques with individuals in groups, and follow-up activities with recovering clients.
Graduates should qualify for positions as substance abuse counselors, DUI counselors, halfway house workers, residential facility employees, and substance education specialists. With educational and clinical experiences, graduates can obtain certification from the North Carolina Substance Abuse Board.
Please Note: This program is not selective admission, however, due to the professional scope of practice/state certification you are pursuing; we require that students complete an interview/fit for duty self-assessment with the program director. The program admissions interview/fit for duty self-assessment is required prior to enrollment in curriculum classes.
You may email firstname.lastname@example.org the Human Services Technology program Director Dr. LaTonya Lee Niang, EdD LCAS CCS to initiate the interview process.
