Paul Weatherly, the Alcohol/Drug Counseling Program Director prior to starting the program or registering for classes.
You probably have many questions about the field of chemical dependency treatment, job availability, applicable prior learning and, sometimes, personal recovery issues. These questions are best addressed in individual meetings. While appointments may be conducted by telephone, meetings in person are usually more productive.
This first point of contact is crucial in establishing a coordinated and informed entrance into the program as well as learning the importance of how to effectively use supervision in the field of addiction treatment.
The Alcohol/Drug Counseling program office in R130 is open Monday–Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. However, the Program Director has flexible office hours to accommodate the needs of working students and other individuals who are unavailable to meet during normal office hours. If you are interested, call 425-564-2012 to make an appointment.
Web-Based Learning Courses
Our program web-based learning is currently under review. We will post when the program becomes available online in the near future.
Prior Learning Assessment
We provide students with experience in the field of addiction counseling to earn credit via a prior learning assessment portfolio process. Experience is evaluated and credit rewarded based on the number of credits for individual classes on a course by course basis. To be eligible to earn prior learning credit, you must do a minimum of ten credits in residence at Bellevue College. If you are interested in documenting course work via the prior learning portfolio process, you will need to register for ALDAC 104.
