Course Description: Every day, countless lives are enriched or saved because of the work carried out by addiction counselors. In a myriad of settings, competent, well-trained counselors form the relationships and carry out the strategies that help their clients move from life-threatening addiction to life-affirming recovery. We can state with certainty that thousands of addiction counselors accomplish their missions with distinction. We also know, however, that even specialists in the addictions field have not traditionally been able to define with clarity the professional standards that should guide their work. What is the scope of practice that is appropriate for an addiction counselor? What are the competencies that are most likely to be associated with positive outcomes? What knowledge, skills, and attitudes should be shared by all members of the addiction counseling profession? The central purpose of this course is to address those questions.
