Substance Abuse Rehabilitation
University of Maine at Augusta
UMA’s Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Certificate Program provides course work relevant to the education requirements for licensure in Maine. At present, an applicant for licensure must have a minimum of an associate degree in a substance abuse rehabilitation related field.
The substance abuse rehabilitation certificate provides the necessary course work for people who are interested in becoming substance abuse counselors or who already have a degree in another field. The certificate also provides the education for someone who is working on a degree in a field other than substance abuse rehabilitation.
