Addiction Studies, Masters & Doctorate

There is a growing demand for further education and credentials in the area of addiction. You may have a professional and academic background similar to our current candidates. Are you a licensed addiction professional with a bachelor or master’s degree who has taken professional and continuing education courses or are you an addiction professional seeking bachelors and post-masters certification as well as an international certification? If you are, you may have completed all the needed coursework for your master’s or doctorate. An examination may be required to convert this coursework into graduate credit.
