Breining Institute, with its main campus located in California, was first approved as a provider of higher education by the State of California Department of Education in 1986.

Our degree programs have been specifically approved by the State of California after comprehensive review, and the current agency under which that approval is granted is the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE).


Breining is approved by "California's choice" for professional AOD/SUD counselor certification, the California Association for Alcohol / Drug Educators (CAADE), and Breining graduate degree programs are specifically recognized for, among other things, the purpose of qualifying for the NAADAC (the largest, nationally-recognized addiction professional membership organization in the United States, with 44 US affiliate organizations) advanced and nationally-recognized Master Addiction Counselor (MAC) certification.

 
     
   
 

Distance learning requires a mature and motivated student, disciplined enough to complete assignments out of the classroom. A recent U.S. Department of Education report concluded that these older distance learning students (college level) actually performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction.

Fortunately for these students, employers will typically prefer to hire individuals who have demonstrated greater maturity and motivation, which the completion of a quality distance learning program will provide.

Breining Institute distance learning addiction studies programs are not easy. They are meant to challenge students so that they learn valuable information that they can take with them that will make them competent addiction professionals.
