At Saddleback, students can choose to make a difference, selecting from four tracks in the Human Services program. Alcohol & Drug Studies helps students support those struggling with addiction and their families. For students who want to work in probation, juvenile counseling, or halfway houses, the Community-Based Corrections option provides a strong foundation. There’s also the Mental Health Worker track, which teaches evidence-based practices and strategies for easing the stigma around mental illness. Finally, the Human Services Generalist track is a perfect path for students looking for a broad overview of social work.
