About This Course

The internship provides Addiction Studies students with practical experience in settings where substance abuse and/or co-occurring mental health treatment services are offered. The internship experience allows students to relate academic and theoretical learning to settings outside the classroom. General counseling skills, awareness and influence of self in the counseling process and competency in the 12 Core Functions are enhanced through clinical experience, on-site individual supervision and peer group supervision.

Upon completion of the internship, each student undergoes an extensive formal written and oral evaluation process to ensure ethical and competent clinical practice.
