ALCOHOLISM AND CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY COUNSELOR EDUCATION PROGRAMOffers the CASAC 350-Hour Standardized Curriculum and the program has been re-designed so that the courses listed are the courses needed to complete the 350 hours. The New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (NYS-OASAS) has changed the requirements for the Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC/CASAC-T) certification as of September 1, 2013. 350 clock hours for the program will still be required. However, in the past, candidates could take the 350 clock hours with more than one provider or school and could also choose to take electives within each of the four sections of the program. Those seeking their CASAC certification must now take the 350 educational hours with one provider or school, and there are no longer elective courses. The program consists of 24 courses that vary in length from 3-29 hours and together total 350 hours. Sample course list includes: Adolescent Treatment: From Intake to Discharge; Case Finding and Treatment Planning in Chemical Dependency Treatment; Case Management: Principles and Techniques for Substance Abuse Counselors; Client/Counselor Interaction; Community Education and Prevention; Competencies And Methods of Counseling; Counseling Special Populations and Cultural Competencies; Drug Courts & the Mandated Client; Ethics And Confidentiality in Professional Practice (12 hours in-class, plus 2 hour Mandated Reporter Training Online); Family Dynamics and Family Treatment in Chemical Dependency; From Street to Rehab: Assessment, Evaluation & Planning; Fundamentals of Group Counseling For Chemical Dependency Treatment; Health, Wellness and Communicable Diseases; Integrating Spirituality Into Treatment; Introduction to Addictive Behaviors; Introduction to Diagnostic Criteria; Overview of Chemical Dependency And Its Treatment; Physiology, Pharmacology And Addiction; Physiology, Pharmacology And Addiction Part II; Relapse Prevention; Self Help Groups; Strategies for Engaging the Difficult Client; Tobacco and Vocational Rehabilitation in Substance Abuse Treatment.
