Addiction Studies Online

Viterbo University announces a new degree completion program for counselors working in the area of addiction studies. If you have a two year degree in human services or AODA counseling that is licensed by the State of Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services, you are eligible to enter this bachelor’s degree completion program. Transfer all of your previous credits and we can help you earn a bachelor’s degree from anywhere in the state by attending our online Addiction Studies program. Increase your knowledge, meet other professionals in your field, and move up in your career.  

You will leave this program with practical skills for serving AODA clientele. You will be involved in videotaped counseling sessions, ongoing evaluation of your counseling skills, and "hands on" learning activities that will expand your counseling and overall professional skills. As a Viterbo student you will be engaged in applying current research and outcome assessment of your client's progress. Viterbo's focus on motivational interviewing and evidence based practice will give students an advantage in the job market. By completing your bachelor’s degree you will have met the new state requirement (Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services) by the 2014 deadline. 

The program features a week long summer institute in beautiful La Crosse, Wisconsin along the Mississippi River.  Viterbo's Online Addiction Studies Program is approved by the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (formerly Department of Regulation and Licensing). 

Faculty: Viterbo instructors are practicing professionals with clinical experience in the substance abuse and mental health counseling fields.

When: Students can begin Fall Semester (last week of August), Spring Semester (mid-January) or Summer School (mid-May). 

How: All general education courses and support classes are offered online. However, the clinical based courses are held during the Summer Institute on Viterbo’s campus in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
