Everyone knows someone who is affected by addiction, and the Centre for Addiction Treatment Studies (CATS) experience is one of life-changing education. It has a transformative effect on all our students and they, in turn, make a seismic difference to the lives of others who are affected by addiction.


CATS offers vocational training for counsellors, substance misuse workers and other professionals seeking to develop skills and knowledge in the field of addiction.


Whether you are a college leaver looking to make the transition into higher education, a qualified professional seeking a career change or you are in long-term recovery from addiction, CATS offers professional education and training to help you develop your career.

Our online learning platform includes videos and helpful advice if you’d like to find out more about a career in the field of addiction. You can also study a free three-week course in Understanding Addiction Recovery.
