An Addictions Counseling degree will teach you the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of addiction and recovery. You’ll also gain an appreciation for the connection between theory, research, and practice in the fields of substance abuse and other addictive behaviors. Your student development will be fostered by means of both theoretical and experiential learning.
IWU’s Bachelor of Science with a major in Addictions Counseling program involves a variety of activities such as Urban Encounter, participation in local Drug Court research, volunteer service through Grace House for Recovery, and a senior practicum. You will graduate prepared to understand and compassionately serve addicted persons and their families. Students may also choose to earn an Associate of Science degree for quick entry into the workforce and a foundation for further education, or to minor in Addictions Studies as a supplement to another IWU major.
If you have a heart to help individuals and families break the cycle of addiction and find wholeness in Christ, then we challenge you to consider majoring in Addictions Counseling at Indiana Wesleyan University.
