Brahan Hall Room 008, (518) 629-7341

The Micro-credential CASAC Core II is the second micro-credential being offered for individuals in the helping professions interested in receiving their CASAC-T. The second credential focuses on advanced skills in chemical dependency treatment and provides students with an internship in an approved OASAS setting and seminar. The internship will consist of 168 hours which can be applied to the required clock hours needed for the CASAC licensing exam. The experience further assists students in developing a professional self while working in the parameters of a licensed treatment facility. Students will further develop skills related to assessments, intakes and treatment planning.

Within the seminar setting, students will be provided supervision related to their field experience. The seminar will provide students with the opportunity for continued self-reflection in their role as a professional helper while providing them with effective tools to be used as intervention strategies.
