Addiction and Recovery Studies

The Human Services Technology/Addiction and Recovery Studies curriculum prepares students for entry-level positions in institutions and agencies which provide psychoeducational and community supports and services with a focus on wellness and recovery.  Emphasis in core courses is placed on development of knowledge, skills, and attitudes relevant to addiction and recovery.  Fieldwork experience will provide opportunities for application of knowledge and skills learned in the classroom.

Graduates should qualify for positions in mental health, child care, family services, social services, rehabilitation, correction and educational agencies. Graduates choosing to continue their education may select from a variety of transfer programs at senior public and private institutions.
