Addiction Studies is an Approved Academic Education Provider through NAADAC (Association for Addiction Professionals) with the primary focus of preparing students for WA State Certification as Chemical Dependency Professionals.

Addiction Studies (ADST) also provides university-level education valuable for students in a variety of disciplines such as Counseling, Criminal Justice, Health Education, Psychology and Social Work, among others, and can also enhance effectiveness in personal and career endeavors. Employers are especially eager to hire students with a foundation in Addiction Studies coursework as a part of their major expertise.

General Admission Requirements for Addiction Studies: Students are required to contact the Director of Addiction Studies following the completion of ADST 300. Transfer students will need to meet with the Director to evaluate previous coursework for inclusion in the ADST program.

Our Mission: Addiction Studies fosters the concept of Transformative Learning following the basic tenet: you cannot change anyone but yourself.  Addiction Studies strives to provide opportunities for students to become aware and critical of their own and others' assumptions and to recognize frames of reference using their sociological imaginations to redefine problems from a different perspective. As we change the way we react and behave in our environments, others around us may also be transformed, thereby enhancing community consciousness.
