Antioch University Addiction Studies Certificate (ASC) Program
The spirit of our program is in service of integrating the fundamentals of addiction counseling that have proven to be effective, the explosion of neuroscience research supporting the strong relationship between trauma and addiction, as well as cutting edge clinical interventions that honor the relationship between mental health issues, attachment injury, trauma, and addiction.
The purpose of the Addiction Studies Certificate is to prepare students and professionals with the knowledge and clinical skills required to become an SUDP in the State of Washington via the SUDP Alternative Learning path. The ASC aims to increase participants’ knowledge and skill to provide for the therapeutic needs of clients struggling with substance use disorders and mental health issues. Students and professionals who complete the program will be knowledgeable and clinically competent to treat significant others as well, as this curriculum is heavily influenced by family systems theories. Aligned with our mission statement, the course curriculum is infused with learning experiences that raise awareness about social justice issues related to addiction treatment and skills to become an ally and advocate.
