Distance Learning Center for Addiction Studies (DLCAS.com)
The Distance Learning Center for Addiction Studies http://www.dlcas.com features over 500 continuing education (CE) hours of chemical dependency counseling and addiction studies courses. These courses are accepted for credentialing or maintaining a credential by many national organizations and agencies. Although the courses do not carry regionally accredited semester hours, one can divide by 15 to arrive at an approximation of semester credit hours. Each course features a study guide, final exam, and course evaluation, which must be completed before a certificate is issued. The level and density of content in the courses ranges from undergraduate to graduate levels of instruction. The courses may be completed in no particular order but the basic training curriculum is designed to be completed first by those who are new to the counseling profession. The DLCAS.com coursework may be very useful to those who are seeking specific, update-to-date training on alcohol and other drug (AOD) counseling subjects.
