The Addictions Academy

Inspired By Excellence And Innovation

We offer 30 different Certifications and Trainings, in 25 countries, 5 languages
and over 12,000 people trained and educated.


We specialize in Virtual Learning and have since 2012. You can learn in your PJ’s online either in a virtual classroom (see and hear us) that is super fun and interactive or you can learn by video series at your leisure, still in your PJ’s.

The virtual classroom certifications and training are on the calendar of courses and run 10-3 East Coast Time. We take breaks for snacks and lunch (just like real live classroom education) and we have fun in these classes. The goal is to educate you and deliver the material in a manner that you will enjoy it and remember it.

The video self study series you can watch when ever you have time, in between work, home, at night or 2 am when you cant sleep, and are tired of binge watching Netflix. All exams are induced in there and you even get your certificate or certification (depending on your class choice) at the end.

Prefer live classes? We throwback to 1985 and offer live classes in NYC, Miami, and LA. Please check the calendar for times and locations. You can still come in your PJ’s if you want to!

All classes include the 10 weeks (10 hours of supervision), secondary classes, ethics class, and MORE, We offer lots of great resources to get you started on your new career path helping others.
