Addictions Counselling – Professional Studies Certificate

A faith-based approach

Recovering from life-controlling addictions requires an approach that encom¬passes all aspects of life: physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual. A faith-based program sets a firm foundation for counsellors who wish to engage with addiction recovery from a Christian perspective. Emmanuel Bible College is currently the only Christian institution to offer a professional certificate addictions counselling program certified by the Canadian Addictions Counsellors Certification Federation.
