About the Addictions and the Family Graduate Certificate Program

The Graduate Certificate in Addictions and the Family provides specialized training to mental health providers who work with families and individuals struggling with substance abuse and addictive behaviors. Although not required, we strongly encourage previous successful experience with graduate coursework in mental health related fields as this program is quite rigorous, writing intensive, and is best suited for those with a clinical background.

Coursework requirements include a total of 18 credit hours: 12 credit hours focusing on family systems theories, the impact of addiction on family dynamics, systemic treatment, and issues in professional development; and 6 credit hours chosen from courses in systemic evaluation, developmental issues in therapy, and couple/sex therapy. Additional coursework and clinical experience is required for clinicians seeking to be a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor.
