Crown College: Alcohol and Drug Counseling Program


The online ADC program will provide you with the skills needed to help individuals struggling with addiction to find healing. The program examines the effects of substance abuse on individuals and families with special attention given to the real emotional, cognitive, cultural, professional, financial and spiritual consequences of addiction.

Crown’s Christian-centered counseling program addresses how to recognize and respond to addiction, how to support and help those in need, and the role that faith plays in recovery. Through your courses and internship experience you will be prepared to become a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC) through the MN Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy (BBHT).

Did you know that Alcohol and Drug Counseling is the only field where you can work as a counselor with a Bachelor’s Degree? (No Master’s required.)

Here are some highlights of our program:

  • Quality online classes that provide an overview of key concepts in chemical dependency counseling
  • Classes taught by professors who are licensed counselors working in the field
  • Students get individualized attention due to our small class sizes
  • All courses can be completed online which provides students with flexibility in their education

  • This degree can be combined with other degrees such as Psychology/Counseling, Christian Ministry and Criminal Justice to meet the career goals of the student.
  • The Bachelor’s degree in ADC can also be combined with an MA in Counseling.
