Substance Abuse Counseling Program
Challenging. Demanding. Rewarding.
Substance abuse counseling is a demanding, yet rewarding, field of human service that requires patience, compassion, a keen desire to help others, field-specific knowledge and skill, as well a good deal of psychological maturity.
In our Substance Abuse Counseling Certificate of Competence program, you’ll be offered opportunities to develop the knowledge and skills required for Hawai‘i state certification. Leeward’s program fulfills the education requirement established for Hawai‘i state certification and satisfies a portion of the
experiential hour requirement.
In this part-time, two-year substance abuse counseling program, you’ll focus on developing both basic and intermediate-level knowledge and skills required of entry-level substance abuse counselors and work on developing a personal and professional maturity through a self-exploration process.
