The goal of the Drug & Alcohol Studies Program is to prepare students to become counselors with strong competencies in drug and alcohol addiction, prevention and treatment. We focus on meeting the needs of diverse and low-income urban communities, using a harm reduction approach. We are committed to providing:
-Knowledge of the current trends of drug education, prevention and policy
-Skills to work with people and systems in clinical settings
-Skills to apply research and theory within diverse settings
Our vision statement: "Transform life experiences into the skills for successful work in the field. Guide students in their journey from passive learners to active participants. Nurture the growth of lifelong learners while embracing their diverse backgrounds and communities."
