The mission of the addiction studies concentration is to assist you in becoming an effective addictions counselor by equipping you with the knowledge, competency, and skills needed to prepare for a state credential in addictions counseling. The requirements for certification or licensure in addictions counseling vary in different states, and the Springfield College School of Professional and Continuing Education has designed the concentration in addiction studies to prepare you to meet your state's requirements.
