Are you interested in becoming a counselor working in the field of alcohol and drug addictions? If so, this workshop is strongly recommended. This highly interactive workshop is designed to provide you with a framework of information to guide you in your pursuit of becoming a substance abuse counselor. We explore answers to questions such as:

  • Will I be happy as a counselor?
  • Are there regulations about being a counselor?
  • I am working in the field right now; do I need to become certified?
  • What organizations are authorized to certify counselors?
  • What does certified mean?
  • What is the career path for an alcohol and drug counselor?
  • What can I anticipate about job opportunities?
  • What is the pay range for a counselor?

Later part of workshop will cover:

  • I’ve heard LMU Extension has some great instructors. What do the instructors in the LMU Extension program offer to my future success?
  • What courses do I need to take and what is the tuition?
  • What are some study tips to help me thrive?
  • How do I apply for tuition assistance?

How to find University Hall, room 1859, on the LMU campus: From Lincoln Blvd, turn onto LMU Drive. Please stop of the security office and obtain instructions to the University Hall parking lot. Parking is underground; enter at P2/P3 (student parking). Once in the underground parking lot, find the elevator lobby in parking section 2C or 3C. Parking fee meters are located on the east side of the elevators. (The meter will request you to input your car's license number.) If there are no parking places, please use the valet service for no additional charge. Valet service is available from 9 am to 6 pm. Take the elevator up to the ground (G) level. When you exit the elevator, immediately turn right (do not go straight ahead to enter the "mall"). Look for a chrome colored door marked "1762-1859." Go through the door and turn right; at the next hallway turn right again. Room 1859 is towards the end of the long corridor and is on your left (north) side. Information about parking on campus can be found at: http://admin.lmu.edu/parking/visitingcampus.
