I have a ton of human service type classes, counseling classes, health class, and various other and of course my prerequisites. We have a a wonderful and strict academic adviser who has ran the Addiction Studies program for like 12 years, She is very tough but would you want a whole bunch of drug counselors out there that did not learn the skills needed to be a good treatment counselor.It a highly structured program, it has a high workload lots of reading, research, papers, presentations, and attendance is graded. The curriculum is base off the necessary requirements to get your CACD 1. It has extensive classes that might have two to three more units to fulfill in order to get the skills necessary to go into the field. They have a an above average faculty for a community college and lots of extra circulars that have to do with career like Multi-Cultural training, suicide prevention, sexual assault awareness, and a Addiction Studies club that meets weekly, I will be starting my practicum next term they try to help place you if possible but required to have over 3000 hours of hands on experience to get your Associate's degree.
