Understanding Addictions and Rehabilitation
Individuals struggling with addiction require knowledgeable professionals with a thorough understanding of theories of addiction, how addiction affects the user, the recovery process, and empirically supported treatment interventions and approaches. The addictions and rehabilitation specialization at NCU is designed for individuals interested in gaining knowledge of case management, clinical supervision, clinical supervision leadership strategies, rehabilitation needs of special populations, and evidence-based practices in addiction rehabilitation. This specialization introduces you to topics such as the history of alcohol and other drug treatment models as well as integrated theories of addiction and rehabilitation. By working with mentoring professors who all hold doctoral degrees, you will gain in-depth knowledge that will prepare you for careers in addiction rehabilitation.
