Addiction Treatment Training Certificate Program

Program Description

SUNY Canton’s Applied Psychology Curriculum offers the Addiction Treatment Training Certificate Program. This program allows matriculated and non-matriculated students to obtain coursework that meets the 350 contact hours needed to apply for the Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor-Training (CASAC-T) credential through the New York State Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS). This program also offers partial credit/contact hours courses needed to meet deficiencies in section hours to individuals who have previously applied to OASAS for the credential (see “Partial Credit Offering” below).


Coursework is currently offered both face to face and online. Courses offered only face to face can be offered online through a directed study format if approved.

Partial Program Offerings

Non-matriculated students will have the ability to register for partial credit in some courses in the future. This is determined by the number of contact hours they are lacking through an OASAS application review. Full courses will be divided into three one credit courses so that students may choose just the portion of the course that they lack for the CASAC Certification. Please contact Jennifer Waite to determine if the course you are lacking hours has been revised.

Transfer Credit

Students wishing to have credits obtained elsewhere must submit official transcripts of previous college attendance to show completion of coursework that may be appropriate for transfer.


Currently, the cost is approximately $280 per credit hour. Cost may vary due to college increases.  Please contact SUNY Canton Student Service Center at (315) 386-7616 for billing questions.

Financial Aid

There is no financial aid for non-matriculated students. Financial aid is offered to matriculated students currently enrolled at SUNY Canton in an approved major.
