Addictions Studies

Advisor Contact

These courses are designed for those who are interested in attaining certification from the Florida Certification Board to be Addictions Counselors or for those who have an interest in the addictions or mental health fields. There are no prerequisites for the courses. They are open to anyone, whether or not they wish to seek certification. These courses provide the necessary education hours to apply for the FCB exam to become a Certified Addictions Professional (CAP) or a Certified Associate Addictions Professional (CAAP). Hours are divided into counseling and addictions hours. Florida Keys Community College will award certificates of completion to those students who complete 30-credit hours in the program. For those seeking certification, the HIV and Ethics courses are required. The FCB written certification exam may be taken after completion of education hours and one year experience in the mental health or addictions field. Volunteer work may be counted. Students may select specific courses of interest to meet the required education hours for the FCB. Please note that the college does not give the state exam or the certification.  Both are given by the Florida Certification Board.
