Beginning Summer 2016, this program is no longer accepting new students at Harold Washington. Please refer to the Addictions Studies program at Kennedy-King.
Many Addictions Studies practitioners find employment in medical and non-medical detoxification centers, rehabilitation programs, community mental health centers and family service centers, halfway houses, therapeutic communities, business, or industry. Some combine counseling with such primary professions as nursing, social work, school guidance counseling, or the clergy.
The program is accredited by the Illinois Alcoholism and Other Drug Abuse Professional Certification Association (IAODAPCA).
