UCSD Extension's Professional Certificate Program in Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counseling provides the comprehensive course work and training needed to succeed in a very challenging and demanding career in the healthcare field. The program is designed for individuals interested in getting starting the field, as well as those working in it. NOTE: Individuals entering the program should have at least one year of sobriety, if applicable. Having less than that will make it very difficult to secure a practicum site, which could significantly delay or prevent completion of the program. <br /> The program covers the essential areas of <ul><li>Psychopharmacology</li> <li>Recovery</li> <li>Treatment team coordination</li> <li>Counseling</li> <li>Community services</li> <li>Group leadership</li></ul> <b>Practicum </b> <br> A practicum is also required to earn the certificate. In order to participate in it, you must have minimally completed the following courses (preferably all courses should be completed first): <ul> <li>Chemical Dependency I</li> <li>Chemical Dependency II</li> <li>Law and Ethics for Addiction Professionals</li> <li>Applied Skills for Group Dynamics and Facilitation</li> <li>Case Management</li></ul> The practicum consists of 255 hours of field work during which you also accrue 45 hours of instruction by attending workshops and other educational opportunities as directed by the practicum coordinator.</p> You may begin the practicum in any quarter. Contact the program representative, 858-534-9265, to get started. You are responsible for obtaining a practicum site; however, the practicum coordinator can provide suggestions. In addition to the guidance provided by the coordinator, you will also work under a site supervisor. You have one year to complete the requirements, although most students complete in much less. To extend completion time beyond one year requires students to enroll again for the full fee.</p>
