This course introduces the student to the 12 core functions, 12-Step Program, pharmacology, ethics, rules and regulations, referrals and theory and dynamics of counselling. This course not only prepares the student for certification as an Addictions Counsellor, but equips him/her to deal with the real issues of life which have traditionally been avoided or mishandled by mainstream Christian counsellors.
