|WCSU Psychology Awarded Major HRSA Grant for M.S. in Addiction Studies!
The new Master of Science in Addiction Studies program at WCSU has been awarded an Opioid Workforce Expansion Program grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration.
The grant was designed to improve training in evidence-based prevention, assessment, and treatment for opioid use disorders and other substance use disorders for providers in Connecticut.
Specifically, this grant will allow us to: 1) strengthen our relationships with community partners and build new interdisciplinary partnerships in support of substance use prevention and treatment; and 2) increase the number of students that we support through stipends at training and internship sites each year. The grant provides significant financial support for all students who are approved for a HRSA-supported internship during their Masters degree.
