Alcohol & Substance Abuse @ Genesee

The Alcohol and Substance Abuse Studies Program was developed as a foundation for students who intend to transfer into social work, human services or alcohol/substance abuse majors at four-year schools. Preparation combines a study of:

  • Liberal arts course work to build general education knowledge
  • Effects of substance use on the individual, families, and society
  • Impact of environmental and social factors on substance use
  • Multiple causes of substance use
  • Variety of treatment modalities

In addition, students gain experience from two field placement courses required in this Program. This is a valuable opportunity to observe and, as appropriate, apply their knowledge and skills from class to agency work.
