Great questions! We’ve actually covered this topic in our article How to Become a Substance Abuse Counselor!

The article even includes details on NY certification education & supervised counseling hour requirements.

Two great education options are University of South Dakota Undergraduate Certificate in Addiction Studies and Graduate Certificate in Addiction Studies.

Best of luck!
