The Counselor Education Program provides interested students with academic training in substance abuse counseling. The CAP (Certified Addiction Professional) designation is a professional substance abuse credential for people who assess, develop, and provide substance abuse treatment services and plans.

Substance Abuse Counseling Certification in Florida has three levels of certification for Substance Abuse Counseling. The lowest tier is known as the Certified Addiction Specialist (CAS), the second tier is known as the Certified Addiction Counselor (CAC) and the highest level is known as the Certified Addiction Professional (CAP). COU 5553 Substance Abuse II: Transdisciplinary and Professional Practice  covers the necessary core areas of Alcohol & Drug treatment to meet the requirements for Certified Addiction Professional (CAP).

Please note that the Counselor Education Program does not directly certify individuals in addiction counseling; however, it helps fulfill the educational requirement toward CAP.
