This course consists of supervised training in an alcoholism or drug abuse facility. Such facilities are licensed by the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS). The training must be accomplished under the direct supervision of a licensed, certified or credentialed Qualified Healthcare Professional (QHP). The student enters the field work facility as an intern and is subject to all legal, ethical, and professional standards required of staff members. Internship training emphasizes assessment, evaluation, treatment planning, case management, record keeping, referral, and family and community education. Student performance in those areas is evaluated by the clinical supervisor and staff.
