Interested in a new career focused on helping others? Starting this fall, students can enroll in the Certified Alcohol and Drug Counseling (CADC) program at County College of Morris, which is an approved education training provider of the Certification Board of New Jersey, Inc. (www.certbd.com).
An information session on the program will be held, Thursday, September 13, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. in Cohen Hall, CH 259, on CCM’s Randolph campus, 214 Center Grove Road.
