Description

Sign in for the workshop is from 2:15 pm to 2:30 pm. The workshop will begin at 2:30 pm.

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 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?

Last part of the workshop covers:

  • 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?
  • If I take courses at LMU, is tuition assistance available?

Comments from past workshop attendees about the value of this workshop:

  • This was a great eye opener! I am sure about my future as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor.

  • Information about people with both substance use and emotional challenges.
