DRUG & ALCOHOL ADDICTION
Drug and Alcohol Addiction Counseling Certificate Program
This certificate program aspires to prepare Christians to offer competent counseling services to individuals, families, and groups who struggle with the effects of Substance Use Disorders. The program offers the number of educational hours that the Tennessee State Board of Alcohol and Other Drugs of Abuse Counselors requires for licensure as an Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor (LADAC). Mississippi and Arkansas are ICRC states, which means they have an Addiction Certification and our courses should meet these standards for certification. This is a one year program where students who complete all six courses receive the Graduate Certificate in Addiction Counseling Studies.
The Drug and Alcohol Addiction Counseling (DAAC) program is a cohort style program which will include 3 sessions beginning with a mandatory orientation. Each session consists of 2 classes, one on Friday evenings and the other on Saturday mornings for 10 weeks. All classes meet on the main campus in Memphis.
