Addiction Studies is a Human Services option designed for people interested in entering or furthering their present level of training in the addictions field. A graduate will have acquired an understanding of the concepts, principles, skills, methods, and techniques needed to work with those whose lives have been seriously affected by addiction or abuse.
Graduates may seek employment in chemical
dependency treatment programs; information, diagnostic, and referral
centers; outpatient or follow-up care programs; halfway houses, schools,
hospitals, clinics, prisons, social agencies; and programs supported by
business, church, and government.
The partnership between Rainy River Community College and Mesabi Range College will allow students in the I. Falls area to complete their program at RRCC. General education courses are delivered face-to-face from RRCC instructors, the human services/addiction studies courses are delivered via Interactive Television (ITV) or online through Mesabi Range College.
