An opportunity to obtain a Certified Recovery Specialist (CRS) certification, a Certified Family Recovery Specialist (CFRS) certification, or a better understanding of addiction and recovery, is available for Penn State students this fall. Curriculum & Instruction 497 is a 4-credit course that satisfies general health and wellness credits and is applicable to a wide variety of professions.
Instructor Jason Whitney will teach in-depth knowledge of addiction and recovery to prepare students that qualify for the CRS or CRFS Examination. The course covers three domains including Recovery Management, Education and Advocacy, and Professional Ethics and Responsibility.
Students pursuing the class may be interested in additional opportunities within the Penn State Collegiate Recovery Community such as internships and work-studies. For more information, contact Jason Whitney, via 814-404-4494 or JXW411@psu.edu.
