STLCC Receives Grant For Addiction Studies Certificate Program

December 06, 2016

St. Louis Community College has received a federal grant to offer a Certificate of Specialization in Addiction Studies.

STLCC received the $70,904 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration for this 27-credit-hour program. The program trains paraprofessionals in the field of substance abuse and prevention to work with youth and adolescents.

Students who enroll may be eligible for reduced tuition, pending their qualification. Individuals currently enrolled in the STLCC Certificate of Proficiency in Addiction Studies program and who have already declared addiction studies as their major are not eligible for this program.

Individuals completing the new certificate program must agree to complete a practicum in a substance abuse treatment and prevention program. The focus of the practicum is to partner with agencies and organizations that provide substance abuse treatment and prevention to youth and adolescents.

Candidates for the Addiction Studies Certificate of Specialization program must be able to pass a background check. They also must not have felony convictions or drug convictions or charges pending against them.

Students new to STLCC or those not currently enrolled with the college must apply for admission to college, take a Compass Test, have transcripts evaluated, meet with an advisor and register for courses.
