Addictions Program

The University of Idaho Addictions Program is a member of the Idaho Educators in Addictions Studies Consortium. This group includes members from the University of Idaho, Idaho State University, Boise State University, Lewis Clark State College, the College of Southern Idaho, Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Idaho State Addictions Licensing Board, and Treatment Providers. The goal of this group is to develop a unified curriculum across Idaho State and provide quality training to individuals who wish to pursue addictions training.

On this website, you can find:

All certification areas are set up to be completed in 1.5 to 2 years (if one only takes classes in a "live" format). However, many of the courses are offered online as well. Thus, you can complete the educational requirements faster.

We hope you find the information useful and helpful for decisions related to addictions counseling.
