Substance Abuse Counselor Training Program

substance abuse counselor training programThe Institute of Chemical Dependency Studies (ICDS) substance abuse counselor training is a NAADAC and CAADAC approved education provider and offers the 315 required education hours (including practicum hours) you need to become a Certified Substance Abuse Cousnelor (or CADAC) in California in just 6 months. Attend class one weekend a month, for six months and you are on your way to a career as a Licensed Substance Abuse Counselor.

We talked to Matt, a recent graduate of the ICDS substance abuse counselor training program at Sober College, who shared, “I chose ICDS at Sober College because I wanted to be able to continue working while getting an amazing education.  ICDS counselor training made sense because I could continue to work full time, and I got my CADAC in six months.  I couldn’t be more grateful.”

Classes are offered at Sober College, a young adult drug rehab center in Southern California, who has partnered with ICDS to give you this opportunity.
