The Addiction Studies Certificate has been developed in alignment with the Massachusetts Board of Substance Abuse Counselors Certification (MBSACC) requirements for the educational portion of the Certified Addiction Counselor (CAC) certificate. Courses reflect the educational portion of the state certification requirements solely; additional requirements, including documented supervised hours of practice, may be needed in order to complete the CAC certification process.
For specific information please contact the MBSACC.
CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) and SORI (Sexual Offender Registry Information) background checks may be required prior to field work and will be conducted by specific agencies in accordance with state regulations. CORI and SORI results are confidential.
Depending on the course selection 80% of this program can be completed online. Go to www.hcc.edu/online-learning for further information.
