Program description

Addictions & Community Services Worker

Reward yourself with a multi-faceted career that is committed to assisting alcohol and drug abuse clients within your community. CDI College’s Addictions & Community Services Worker Diploma education programme caters to students who are interested in working in the professional health care sector.

Students enrolled in this 44-week Addictions & Community Services Worker Diploma are introduced to a wide range of core skills including writing, file management, assessment and treatment planning, counselling, and communications. Since addictions and community service workers are required to interact with clients and health care professionals on a daily basis, these core skills are essential to the job.

Additionally, the education curriculum of the Addictions & Community Services Worker Diploma includes the study of psychology, pharmacology, addiction prevention and intervention, and other medical areas. Throughout the education course, each student must complete a total of 320 hours (8 weeks) in a mandatory clinical placement.

CDI College provides a Career and Employment Strategies course that covers job searching and interviewing techniques, resume writing, and job counselling services to help students prepare for the work world. Graduates of the Addictions & Community Services Worker Diploma provide support in child, youth, and family social services, alcoholism, drug abuse, family violence and senior care and career opportunities exist in group homes, correctional and community mental health centres, and facilities for the physically and developmentally handicapped.
