GradCert Addictions: Treatment and Prevention

Georgian College of Applied Arts and Technology

Students develop the skill set to provide a client-centered and client driven continuum of treatment for individuals with addiction problems. With a strong framework of individual and group counselling skills, students study individual, gender, and societal considerations and the resulting treatment implications through the lens of trauma informed care.

In addition, students reconstruct education and prevention strategies in an effort to design, facilitate and evaluate such tools.
