Curriculum for students entering program in 2014-15
This certificate, provided as a joint effort between the Human Service and Criminal Justice departments, approaches treatment of addicted offenders by providing the participant with increased knowledge and understanding of the delivery of successful addiction treatment within today's criminal justice system. A recent trend toward the combining of sanctions and treatment for addictions has effectively changed the knowledge base necessary to provide these services. Understanding the correlation between drug addiction and crime is now required knowledge for addiction counselors, law enforcement and corrections personnel, as new program designs require proficiency in the delivery of treatment services that address both the offense and the addiction.
The certificate program cross-trains criminal justice and addiction staff, and includes an Internship experience allowing the student to receive hands-on, supervised instruction in a setting providing this combination of services. The Certificate Program may be taken in the day format below or over two years in day/evening format.
This program is financial aid eligible. To be eligible for federal financial aid, students must submit an official, final high school transcript, or the equivalent documentation that demonstrates high school completion, to the NHTI Admissions Office.
