I’m a recent graduate from Colorado Technical University, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice concentrating in Human Services. I really would like to be a substance abuse counselor either the ACC or the AADC. What are the requirements in West Virginia so that I may be able to successfully become what I dream to be.
