In addition to the Associate's Degree program, the Substance Abuse concentration also offers multiple certificates designed to prepare professionals who already have a degree to seek additional knowledge in the area of substance abuse and/or state certification/licensure. Certificate selection depends on the student's specific career goals. Upon completion of these courses a certificate will be awarded by the College. This certificate may be used towards the initial or renewal of Certification/Licensure through the North Carolina Substance Abuse Professional Practice Board (NCSAPPB) or the National Association of Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC). These courses are also approved the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC). If you already have a degree but it is not in a like field, you will be required to take additional prerequisite courses prior to or in conjunction with those required of the certificate.
