Substance Abuse Counselors are in high demand within the region and beyond. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook, the job outlook for Substance Abuse Counselors is expected to rise much faster than average, with an anticipated 31% increase in jobs between the years 2012-2022. Participants have two career options through the two-semester program choosing to become either a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor Assistant or, those who have already completed a Bachelor’s Degree, will become a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor. SWCC will also offer job search services for those who successfully complete the certificate courses. Financial aid is available for this program to all who qualify.
