About Substance Abuse Counseling

The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Substance Abuse Counseling at Kilgore College can be completed in two years and provides the educational foundation required by the Texas Department of State Health Services to pursue a credential as a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC). The program offers online classes as well as a structured supervised practicum in an approved off-campus training site during the last two semesters of course work. Students who successfully complete the program will be prepared to begin the 4,000 hours of required supervised work to become an LCDC.

Request For Criminal History Evaluation Letter

In accordance with state law, potential applicants can request the LCDC Board run a “trial” criminal history evaluation before entrance in the Substance Abuse counseling program and Counselor Intern (practicum) status. This evaluation is helpful if potential applicants are concerned, they may be ineligible to apply for Counselor Intern (CI) status. There is a $50 fee for this evaluation, and potential applicants can request this evaluation by clicking here.
