Program of Study
The Certificate in Addiction Intervention II is a 15 credit, online graduate program that will prepare non-clinical professionals (e.g. Public Health, Education, Psychology, Corrections, Law Enforcement, etc.) to act as professionally trained intermediaries between individuals seeking addiction services and professionals providing evidence based practices in both prevention and treatment. Twelve Credits will be devoted to provide students with research based content in “Best Practices in Substance Abuse Prevention”, “Best Practices in Substance Abuse Treatment”, “Co-Occurring Substance Use and mental Health Disorders”, and “History of Addiction Treatment and Recovery”. 
Capstone Project

The capstone course for the certificate is a course in “Motivational Interviewing”. Upon completion of these five 3 credit online courses, the Indiana Counselor’s Association on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (ICAADA) will award the Professional Certificate.
