Minor in Alcohol and Drug Counseling
The Occupational Outlook Handbook indicates a job-growth rate of 27% (faster than average) for substance abuse counselors. Crown students can meet this critical demand with the accredited online Alcohol and Drug Counseling Minor. Our Christian-centered counseling program addresses how to recognize and respond to addiction, how to support and help those in need, and the role faith plays in recovery.
Students majoring in Criminal Justice, Psychology or Christian Ministry, who pair their B.S. degree program with the Alcohol and Drug Counseling Minor, dramatically increase their employment options post-graduation. Professional opportunities range from healthcare, education and corrections, to corporations, faith-based organizations, and social-service agencies that work with adults and juveniles. Tuition is priced competitively lower than at similar accredited institutions. In fact, 98% of Crown’s enrollees received student loans, scholarships and financial aid.
Crown’s faculty recognizes how alcohol and other drug abuse negatively influences institutions and society. The effects of substance abuse on individuals and families also have real emotional, cognitive, cultural, professional, financial and spiritual consequences. Coursework for the Alcohol and Drug Counseling Minor includes drug and addiction theory, case management, identification and treatment, delivering professional practice, and Christian studies that foster ways to incorporate faith into a counseling practice. Students can add internships to the minor to complete licensure requirements.
