Peer Support/Addiction & Recovery Short-Term Technical Certificate

Peer Support/Addiction & Recovery Short-Term Technical Certificate

This program is available at the Beavercreek and Springfield - Leffel Lane locations.

Upon successful completion of the SWK 1110 Peer Support Fundamentals I course, students will receive Peer Recovery Support certification from the State of Ohio's Department of Mental Health and Addictions Services Board. This certification is being sought after many employers to help their recovering individuals maintain stability.

Students who themselves are in recovery with addiction and/or mental health issues have the option of starting their educational journey and employment as Peer Recovery Supporters (See the Peer Recovery Support Short-Term Technical Certificate). Peer Recovery Supporters have the opportunity to earn clinical credentials by completing the Peer Support/Addiction and Recovery Short-Term Technical Certificate. This certificate provides a bridge, enabling a Peer Recovery Supporter to obtain the Chemical Dependency Counselor Assistant (CDCA) State of Ohio certification.

This certificate enables a Peer Recovery Supporter to move into the clinical treatment program of study in the Addiction and Recovery Services degree. It may also be blended into the Social Work Technology degree.
