Addictions and Substance Use Disorders

Program Overview

Truly unsung heroes are the ones who aid and assist in the healing of those struggling with substance abuse. Addiction and substance abuse counselors help not only those with addiction issues, but also those affected by substance abuse in their families, relationships, and communities. If this sounds like a world in which you’d like to lend you skills, consider a career in addiction counseling.

Our courses focus on various medical, emergent, and intervention models, as well as self-help groups, recovery processes, relapse factors, and family dynamics. Our Addictions and Substance Use Disorders program also helps students like you advance toward earning a state or national addiction certification.

Make it happen. Start your future in helping others learn to heal today.

Students at any Maricopa Community College may need to complete courses at more than one of our colleges.
