FRAMINGHAM – MassBay Community College announced the college will be hosting a virtual information session for its newly-designed Substance Abuse certificate program on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at noon.

At the information session, prospective students will learn about the program and what career opportunities will be available to graduates. The Substance Abuse program is in high-demand fields of study in the Greater Boston and MetroWest areas, preparing students to join the workforce immediately or create a pathway for easy transfer to a four-year institution to continue their education.

Preliminary data from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health from January- March 2020, show there were 467 confirmed and estimated opioid-related overdose deaths in the Commonwealth.

“Our Substance Abuse certificate will meet the high-demand need for licensed and qualified counselors to assist people with addiction issues and to make a difference in the fight against opioid-related overdose deaths,” said MassBay Dean of Business and Professional Studies, Susan Maggioni. “Students will graduate with both the content knowledge and 300 required hours of field work to prepare them for LADC II certification.”

Students can complete Substance Abuse certificate program in one-year, with a three-semester course load.

The program is aligned with state requirements for licensed alcohol and drug counselors (LADC II) and will ready students to enter the workforce in the substance abuse field or continue their education to earn an associate degree in human services, psychology, or social work.

To RSVP for the virtual information, email MassBay Senior Admissions Counselor, Heidi Mackey, hmackey@massbay.edu. Interested students will receive an email with video conferencing information after registering.
