About Psychology (Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counseling concentration) at Midway University

Looking for a career in counseling to assist those in need?

Want to make a difference in the lives of others?

Then consider a degree in Psychology focused on alcohol and drug counseling.

Midway University's Bachelor in Psychology with an Alcohol and Drug Counseling concentration will provide training in the special skills and techniques required in the profession of addiction counseling. Courses in the program will cover the 12 core functions (screening, intake, orientation, assessment, treatment planning, counseling, case management, crisis intervention, client education, referral, reports and record keeping, consultation) of addiction counseling. In addition to these core functions, courses will also provide training on confidentiality, ethics, and practice in the form of in-class case presentations, in-class demonstration of individual and group therapy techniques, and supervised practicum experiences with licensed community mental health providers.

Practicum placements, work contracts, and work with a community mental health provider must have faculty approval. The concentration in Alcohol and Drug Counseling will take the place of a minor for students enrolled in the BA degree program in Psychology. The goal of this program is to assist the student in acquiring necessary training and hours towards the required amount of practice experience needed for certification as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor in the State of Kentucky. Additional hours may be required beyond what is offered through the program and will be the student's responsibility.

During the last two semesters in this program, students may have to complete full-time practicum placements that will require approved supervision by a licensed mental health provider.
