LACT courses are open to all individuals interested in learning more about addiction. Many students are interested in becoming Professional Addiction Counselors. Allied health professionals such as social workers, nurses, marriage and family therapists, and other helping professionals often benefit substantially from developing specialized skills in addiction work to better assist their clients, as well as to earn credits for a Specialty Certificate in Addiction. A commitment to become a full time Addiction Professional is not necessary for course enrollment, but a strong desire to study the addiction field is essential. Although a high school or college degree is not required, students should have basic writing, reading, and verbal skills in order to get maximum benefit from the program.
