Addictions and Chemical Dependency Minor

About the Addictions and Chemical Dependency Minor

Cedarville’s Christian Addictions and Chemical Dependency minor will equip you to understand and help those who are suffering with addictions with Christlike compassion. This minor will complement or enhance your chosen major with a specialized area in clinical psychology. A minor such as this is beneficial if you want to serve in ministry, community agencies, and in the many career opportunities in health and human services that assist those who wish to overcome their addictions. It is also helpful for anyone seeking education and training toward becoming a Substance Abuse/Addictions Counselor.
