    The Addiction Studies Program (formerly known as Alcohol/Drug Studies) is an Approved Academic Education Provider through NAADAC (the Association for Addiction Professionals) with the primary focus of preparing students for WA State Certification as Chemical Dependency Professionals.

    Addiction Studies (ADST) also provides university-level education valuable for students in a variety of disciplines such as Counseling, Criminal Justice, Health Education, Psychology and Social Work, among others, and can also enhance effectiveness in personal and career endeavors. Employers are especially eager to hire students with a foundation in Addiction Studies coursework as a part of their major expertise.

    General Admission Requirements for Addiction Studies: Students are required to contact the Director of Addiction Studies following the completion of ADST 300. Transfer students will need to meet with the Director to evaluate previous coursework for inclusion in the ADST program.
