The Human Services/Drug Studies program is designed to prepare students for para-professional jobs in social service and/or addiction treatment agencies. Completion of the Drug Studies certificate and/or degree provides students with a core requirement for state approval as Certified Addiction Treatment Counselors. The department offers a unique combination of theoretical and skill courses providing students with a solid foundation for both the helping professions as well as preparation for university coursework. Many of the courses for both Human Services and Drug Studies transfer as major requirements to several local colleges in the California State University system.
