Students enrolled in internship or practicum in conjunction with their graduate or undergraduate degree plan can complete a supervised practical experience requirement for counseling thanks to PaRC. Goals involve 300-600 hours of volunteer work, without pay, in an addiction counseling environment from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. weekdays.
A paid, supervised internship can follow as a Chemical Dependency Fellowship, with learning about best practices in treating addictive diseases and disorders. A limited number of paid internships provide licensed interns the opportunity to experience training and supervised work experience that enable them to develop competence in treating substance use disorder while they fulfill the supervised work experience required for their license as a LCDC, LPC or LMFT.
