Addiction Education 

The Addiction Education Program provides extensive opportunities for professional development in addiction prevention and treatment best practices. This program promotes the recognition of addiction as a major public health concern, maintains a strong focus on special populations, and addresses the need to reduce stigma and connect practitioners with the empirically supported advancements in the field. Our programs are geared towards alcohol and drug counselors as well as professionals in related fields (e.g., parole, probation, and drug court officers). We are accredited by multiple state and national organizations, including the NJ Department of Health and Senior Services (public health), The Certification Board, Inc. (drug and alcohol counseling), the National Board for Certified Counselors, the National Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors, and the National Association of Social Workers. We award continuing education units across multiple disciplines.
