This curriculum helps to develop specific skills required for effective individual and group intervention counseling for people affected by alcoholism, substance abuse, and addiction. Students completing this program fulfill all of the education and training requirements of the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) to become a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC). Four courses are required in this area of concentration after successful completion of HS241 Chemical Dependencies. The two counseling courses are AS201 Introduction to Alcoholism/Substance Abuse Counseling and HS233 Group Counseling Skills. The individual and group counseling courses introduce the skills required to assess and treat an addicted individual or family, and to recognize the effectiveness of the individual and group modalities. AS202 Alcoholism/Addiction and Family Systems provides an understanding of co-dependency, the characteristics of healthy and dysfunctional families, and treatment of the family versus the individual. Students are encouraged to begin formative thinking in family systems concepts. The final course is AS204 Special Topics in Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Treatment Programs.The populations include adolescents, the elderly, and women as well as individuals with multiple problems or disabilities. Special attention is devoted to ethnic and cultural differences that require different responses from the treatment community. Students in their second year may select either a counseling or a prevention track. One High School Mathematics Course or its equivalent is required.
