Substance abuse counselor training in Arkansas prepares you to work in a career that covers a wide range of human services, all centered around getting a person back to living a healthy lifestyle. The Arkansas Substance Abuse Certification Board (ASACB) certifies professional substance abuse counselors in Arkansas. The education you need prepares you with skills in a large category of subjects including:

  • Professional ethics
  • Communicable diseases
  • Prevention
  • Programs designed for individuals, families, and groups
  • Understanding and dealing with addictive personalities
  • Crisis Intervention both for the individual and the family
  • Counseling in individual and group settings
  • Health and wellness programs

The degree program you choose will largely depend on how far you want to go with your career. Many people are satisfied with a bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Science. You may be one who wants to go further and get a PhD. If you seek to become an administrator, or educator, you will need to complete a minimum of a master’s. Along with your degree, you will also be required to complete a practicum. The hours vary according to your level of education. The maximum is three years, or 6000 hours, in several categories under supervision. Each degree level allows you to reduce the number of practicum hours by as many as 2000 hours. The Arkansas Department of Human Services may be a good resource for you to find clinics in which to complete your practicum. (http://www.arkansas.gov/dhs/homepage.html)
