Helping to counsel those with addictions can be incredibly gratifying and requires a deep understanding of addictions counseling, group counseling, psychopharmacology, and co-occurring disorders, and how to apply this knowledge to guide clients toward recovery. All of these topics are included in the specialized curriculum offered to students who choose to pursue this concentration at Purdue University Global.
Students who complete the addictions concentration within the master’s degree in psychology program will meet the coursework requirements for eligibility to take the NAADAC Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) certification examination.
