The Bachelor of Health Sciences major in Addictions Counselling at the University of Lethbridge is the only Canadian program of its kind. The program gives students the knowledge they need to guide people through the addiction recovery process. In their second and fourth year of studies, students will complete a 13-week internship, offering students valuable clinical experience to prepare them for their careers.
Graduates from this four-year program earn a Bachelor of Health Sciences with a major in Addictions Counselling. (Please note: This program is offered at the Lethbridge campus only, and cannot be completed through distance learning.)
A post-diploma option is available for graduates of the Drug and Alcohol Counsellor diploma program at Fleming College and the Child and Youth Care program at Lethbridge College. Students who have completed similar addictions college diploma programs elsewhere may also be considered.
