Make a Difference. Become a Leader in the Emerging Field of Integrative Addiction Therapies.

The Certificate of Advanced Study in Integrative Addiction Therapies prepares healthcare professionals to treat patients suffering from substance use disorders within the holistic spectrum by healing the body, mind, and spirit. Students will learn to integrate evidence-based complementary and integrative therapies (CIT) such as nutritional neuroscience, neurofeedback, meditation, auricular acupuncture, and Qigong bioenergy therapies within the framework of conventional healthcare. These integrative therapies will enable healthcare practitioners to incorporate innovative, caring and holistic methods to an underserved population.

Substance use disorders are among the country’s most ubiquitous health and social issues. This cutting edge program is designed to empower practitioners to utilize complementary and integrative therapies within the scope of conventional healthcare practice to treat substance abuse disorders and enhance patient outcomes.

A holistic, integrative treatment program for addiction requires combining neuronutritional treatment with other facets (bio, psycho, social, spiritual, economic), including counseling and education to support lifestyle change.
