Where do I start my career in the Addictions Field?

Your Roadmap to Success starts here at The Addictions Academy when you decide you want to help others overcome their addictions. Maybe you are in recovery from an addiction or substance use disorder yourself or you are a family member or advocate that wants to learn more about addiction and assist other families in getting the help they need. Whatever brought you here, you have come to the right place and we welcome you to our family!

Our most popular class is our Nationally Certified Recovery Coach class, which focuses on the drug and alcohol issues of a client and how to coach them through their goals, action plan, purpose, and passion in life, staying sober (or harm reduction) and teaching accountability and life skills. Most people in recovery want to take this class to get certified to help others post-treatment or in lieu of treatment.

Our next most popular class is our Nationally Certified Intervention Professional class. In this class, we focus on the crisis client and getting them into treatment. Most people will take both the Recovery Coach class and the Intervention Professional class and build their private practice to assist the same client to get into treatment and coach them post-treatment.
