DENVER, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Aspen University, a leading provider of affordable online education, announced today two new degree programs, a Bachelor's and Master's in Psychology of Addiction and Counseling.

As an example of the cost effective nature of these programs, the 48 credit hour master's program has a total tuition of $4,800.
The programs offer a comprehensive curriculum designed to provide students with the skills needed to gain success pursuing or advancing in addiction counseling careers. Successful completion of the program provides graduates with a recognized degree that will be valuable when pursing personal growth and socially responsible opportunities in addiction counseling careers.
Both of the new programs are approved by the Association for Addiction Professionals (NAADAC). NAADAC approved education providers offer training and education for those who are seeking to become certified and those who want to maintain their certification. All educational training programs are reviewed for content applicability to national certification standards. Aspen University is newly listed as an approved NAADAC education provider."Three days before I started at Aspen my younger brother died from an overdosed of some derivative of cocaine and pain killers," noted Dr. David E. Lady, President of Aspen. "On day one I started the process of getting these two degrees created and approved by the appropriate agencies. If anyone has addiction in their family, close to them, or has considered a career in this field, and a NAADAC approved degree will help them achieve their goals, I hope the low cost and flexible online nature of these programs make them a consideration. If Aspen is able to help one single person, directly or indirectly with this curriculum, then these programs will be complete success." Aspen University, the first accredited university to offer a 100% online MBA, is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC).
