The overarching goal of the Program is to enhance the quality of substance use disorder treatment and care delivery available in the state of Utah.

Course Checklist

Please be aware that completing the SUDTTC Program and earning a certificate of proficiency does NOT guarantee that you will become licensed. Licensing is controlled by the state on a case-by-case basis. Additional information in regard to obtaining your Substance Use Disorder Counselor (SUDC) or Advanced Substance Use Disorder Counselor (ASUDC) license may be found through the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing: http://www.dopl.utah.gov/. The University of Utah has no authority with licensing.

A personal history of alcohol and/or substance abuse or conviction for past criminal activity or conduct does not affect the chances of a student being admitted to the program. Students, however, must be advised that past or future substance abuse or criminal activity may limit or inhibit them from securing an internship, which is required for completion of the SUDTTC Program. In addition, students may be ineligible to receive a state license to practice or obtain employment in the field. For more information, contact the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing.

Upon acceptance into the Substance Use Disorder Treatment Training Certificate Program you will need to pay a $50 seating fee. Click here to pay the SUDC Seating Fee.
