As our society grows more and more aware of the toll that addiction takes on individuals, families, and communities, the need for trained professionals in the field of addictions steadily grows. The Addiction Studies Certificate provides students with foundational knowledge in psychology, human services, addictions, and substance abuse. Courses in this program will apply towards the educational requirements for professional certification. Additional requirements, including documented supervised hours of practice, will be needed in order to complete the certification process.

For specific information about the certification process, please contact the MBSACC or MBSAS.



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 course selection, 80% of this program can be completed online. Go to Online Learning  for more information.
