Program Description

The CASAC Addiction Counseling Program is available to both current students at The College of New Rochelle and to visiting students who are only interested in earning this 27 credit certificate. This counseling program prepares students to work with people with addictions to alcohol, drugs, nicotine, and gambling. Counselors work in the fields of mental health, school prevention, correctional services, and in private practice.

The College of New Rochelle is a certified CASAC Education and Training Provider. As part of the CASAC Certificate Program, students receive the academic courses necessary for issuance of the CASAC certificate. Students are then prepared for the New York State Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor exam. CASAC is also designed to meet the professional development training and education needs of social workers, psychologists, mental health practitioners, health care providers, and prevention specialists.

The CASAC Addiction Counseling Program provides students with strong theoretical and practical foundations, which can lead to career advancement in the human services and health care fields. Students learn to assess problems, make differential diagnosis and set up treatment plans. Students are also equipped with strategies for early intervention, prevention, and treatment.
