Addiction Studies Certificate

As addiction runs rampant in our society and our churches, the Christian community needs to respond with both biblical truth and clinical competence. Our Addiction Studies Certificate (ASC) addresses this need by offering you state of the art addiction treatment education taught by faculty with experience unmatched in the field. This program equips you to work with substance abuse, dependency, sexual addiction, and a variety of other addictions as a licensed therapist, lay leader, or pastor. You’ll be prepared to work in counseling settings, mental health centers, rehabilitation programs, pastoral ministry, and church sponsored recovery groups. This foundation allows you to achieve advanced certifications from organizations like the California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals (CCAPP) and the National Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC).
