Addictions Counselling

The Addictions Counselling major at the University of Lethbridge is the only one of its kind in Canada. The program gives students the skills to guide people through the addiction recovery process.

Students develop the practical skills and theoretical knowledge needed for a role in treatment, prevention, and health promotion.

Students complete two internships over their program to gain valuable experience in local, national or international placements. Many of our graduates have found immediate success in the job market because of the practical experience they have gained in our program.
