Alcohol/Substance Abuse Studies

Alcohol and Substance Abuse Studies Program

The Alcohol and Substance Abuse Studies Program (ASAP) may be pursued as a track of the liberal arts program in health science, as a complete set of electives to complement another major, as a complete set of courses for a non-matriculated student or selectively as independent electives. The ASAP courses partially fulfill requirements for the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) Credentialed Alcoholism/Substance Abuse Counselor examination. Current CASAC holders may elect to take some or all of these courses to fulfill the continuing education requirements of the credential.  You can also read more about the ASAP program here.

Students matriculated into the Alcohol and Substance Abuse Studies Program (ASAP) after the Fall 2009 semester are required to complete the following courses.
