The Casper College addictionology program trains students preparing to work in a variety of human service fields.

Certified Addiction Practitioners work under the supervision of licensed professionals in private and public sector organizations to provide diagnosis, assessment, education and treatment services to clients with alcohol, drug, and other addiction problems. In addition, addictionologists refer clients with addiction problems to other social services agencies.
The program is designed to update the skill and knowledge of individuals currently working in alcohol and drug counseling areas or those with master's degrees preparing to become Licensed Addiction Therapists. It also trains students preparing to work in counseling, psychiatry, psychology, nursing, social work, rehabilitation, criminal justice, community service, or related human service fields. Courses are also available for current addictions practitioners who meet course requirements.

Program prerequisites: While participating in the program, recovering students will agree to abstain from alcohol and other illicit drugs. All other students must agree not to abuse alcohol or use illicit drugs while in the program.

An associate of science (A.S.) degree is recommended for students planning to continue toward a bachelor's degree in social work (BSW), psychology, or other human services curriculum. Students completing the degree are prepared with a training that is in great demand for entry-level social workers.

A certificate program in addictionology is also available to students who have earned a degree in another major area.
