SUDC Counselors help people who have alcohol and other drugs related issues. They counsel addicts, those who are concerned they may become addicts, and on occasion their loved ones. A SUDC does not prescribe medication or provide medical or psychological therapy. They usually help with practical problems, for example, helping a client find a job. In individual or group counseling settings a SUDC would help the client:

  • identify behaviors and problems related to their substance use
  • talk about, understand, and cope with problems
  • develop personalized recovery programs
  • establish healthy behaviors and coping strategies

  Program Learning Outcomes

  • Professional Knowledge of Substance Abuse 
    Students will be able to identify behaviors and problems related to substance use.
  •  Proficiency in Counseling by Applying Content Knowledge
    Students will be able to develop personalized recovery programs for their clients that establish healthy behaviors and coping strategies and they will do so in strict adherence to professional ethics.
