Just for You
The Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counseling Program is
for students interested in pursuing a career as a Credentialed Alcoholism and
Substance Abuse Counselor, in the field of addiction treatment. Students
participating in this program will be provided with the 350 hours of education
and training required by the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse
Services (OASAS), in order to receive a credential as an alcoholism and
substance abuse counselor. Upon
completion of this program, the student will receive a certificate, provided by
OASAS, to attach to their Credential Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor
application. The student will be sent, after the application is received and
processed, their certification as a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse
Counselor – Trainee (CASAC-T). Students
receiving this certification as a CASAC-T can work at alcohol and substance
abuse agencies throughout New York State.
A personal interview may be required before being admitted to the Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counseling program. Your academic and professional competence will be periodically reviewed by the faculty. Enrollment and continuation in the Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counseling program are subject to faculty approval.
If you choose to transfer to the Alcohol and
Substance Abuse Counseling program from another Onondaga curriculum, you must
have at least a 2.0 cumulative average. Special program costs may include transportation to and from
fieldwork sites. You may be required to have a medical exam, a tuberculin test
and a background check before beginning your fieldwork.
