Chemical Dependency (CDEP)
The course is designed to equip the student with the intellectual tools and core counseling skills necessary to become an effective program counselor. It is during this internship phase that the student has the opportunity to practice and further develop these skills under the supervision of a licensed chemical dependency counselor at an approved internship site. A weekly seminar to discuss the field experience is also required. Five credits may be taken in each of two sequential semesters totaling ten credits (requiring 880 total hours).
