Available concentration credits
An internship is a requirement of the state of MN in order to obtain licensure as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor. Therefore, Crown College assists students in finding an internship site that will prepare them to enter the chemical health field. Internships provide students with experiential learning in order to develop skills and receive training from professionals in the field. Though there is no guarantee, many students get hired by their internship sites. Potential Internship Sites:
- MN Adult & Teen Challenge
- Nystrom & Associates
- Riverplace Counseling Centers
- Park Avenue Center
- St. Louis Park Counseling Clinic
While they must be preapproved by Crown to ensure that they meet licensing board requirements, students often find their own internship sites.
