Chemical Dependency Studies Program page
The Chemical Dependency Studies (CDS) program prepares students to practice in the field of chemical dependency counseling. Students who complete the 2 year chemical dependency studies program will have met the certification requirements for chemical dependency treatment service providers (WAC 246-811). Students are required to have a two-year degree, or its equivalent, from an accredited college or university in addition to an internship (2,500 hours for a two-year degree). Students must also pass a certification test before qualifying as a Chemical Dependency Professional. The CDS program also provides opportunities for professional development studies for practitioners to review and expand their skills.
This program is designed for those already working with alcoholism and drug abuse, those aspiring to become chemical dependency professionals, and those who desire this education to enhance other areas of human services such as educators, social workers, school counselors and mental health workers.
