Certified Addictions Counselor or Certified Addictions Recovery Coach? How to Choose?

How to determine if I want to be a Certified Addictions Counselor or a Certified Addictions Recovery Coach. Read on, then decide.

 

addictions counselor

When it comes to choosing a career path and helping others, the biggest decision a lot of people have to make is, do they want to be a Nationally Certified Recovery Coach (NCRCII) or a state or country Certified Addictions Counselor (CAC or CAP). These are two very different job descriptions, pay rates, and they each come with rules and regulations. An addictions counselor training program runs between 270 and 350 hours. After you complete the hours, you have to also complete a hands-on training program within an approved mental health or addictions treatment facility. Once you complete the hands-on training and pass all the hours of education then you can sit for your state, country, or providence exam. The Addictions Academy is proud to offer the 350 hours that you need for training completely 100% online and at a go-with-your-own pace and your own leisure plan. This training is accredited by the State of Florida, the entire Country of Canada, and several other accreditation bodies including the ICADC. Most states will accept The Addictions Academy’s addiction counselor 350-hour online training and once you have completed all nine domains which include all nine courses, you can then sit for their exam to become either licensed or certified in your respective state. Once you become a certified addictions counselor, you can work for an addictions treatment facility or a mental health facility and you will be able to accept insurance through them. You can also go into private practice and offer addictions counseling to individual clients. We even have a marketing program that will show you how to become an addictions counselor and help a lot of people and also make it a lucrative career at the same time.

Our other training, the Nationally Certified Recovery Coach level I and level II is a very different class. This is a 36 hour training program that contains level one, level two, ethics, and 10 weeks of Coach Mentorship. Level one contains life skills, coping skills, defense mechanisms, and how to be a coach as required by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) with the 11 core competencies of coaching. We are accredited with them for CCE. After you complete level one, either by video self-study or online virtual classroom or even live in person, you will complete the level two which contains the DSM-V and all mental health issues and drugs that are prescribed for mental health. We have also included an ethics class that is a six-hour self-study that comes with this platform AND 10 weeks of coaching Mentorship by master coaches that have between 5 and 30 years of experience in the industry of addiction treatment and addiction coaching. This class is accredited and available in 25 to different countries. Click HERE to see the class offerings and use code AC-250-off and expires on October 15, 2020.

Both classes and both career paths are very different. Addictions Counselors make between $28,000 and $60,000 per year depending on where you are located. Certified Recovery Coaches make between $75,000 and $150,000 per year in private practice. Addiction treatment centers will hire both career paths depending on what you would prefer to do. Counselors are required to follow all state requirements and work within a specific jurisdiction, whereas coaches can be more mobile and work easier by phone and Skype. The next recovery coach class coming up is October 8 and 9th.

States Slash the Addiction Budget, While Overdoses Rise. See our Answer to this!

 


addiction, recovery coach, The Addictions Academy

States slash addiction budgets as overdoses and mental health skyrocket. That means free and low-cost services will be a thing of the past. Treatment centers can operate at a 20% fill rate, which means jobs are lost and fewer clients per facility. Those that lost jobs have no insurance and can not pay for the treatment with insurance anymore. That means that qualified and trained mental health and addiction service providers are in-demand. That means that cash pay services will go up and recovery coaches, interventionists and counselors in the field need to be ready to accept clients.

But we have a shortage of qualified, educated and trained individuals. If you are ready to combat the COVID 19 pandemic and utilize your time while in lockdown to help more people and create a nice income for yourself, we at The Addictions Academy are ready to help you succeed. The Addictions Academy is the industry’s top school and training entity who offers training and certifications both in person or through our state of the art virtual classroom settings. Most of us are in “lockdown” mode, curfews, or some type of social restrictions during the COVID 19 pandemic, so this would be the perfect time to enroll in one of The Addictions Academy’s online virtual certification classes. I would also like to mention that Covid-19 has caused a major spike in drug use and addiction in general and, with this being said, there is a high-demand for top nationally certified professional recovery coaches.

YOU are the answer! 

Like I mentioned before, The Addictions Academy has a reputation of turning out and certifying the industry’s best professional recovery coaches and also offers job placement to qualified students. We have now trained over 15,000 individuals in 25 countries and we are translated into 5 languages. Over 350 addiction treatment centers have hired us to train their staff and credential them.

The next virtual online class offered by The Addictions Academy is Nationally Certified Recovery Coaching Level I. This is both an entry-level recovery coaching certification or a way for existing professional recovery coaches to also sharpen their skills. This class is being held July 23-24 from 10-3 EDT. Nationally Certified Recovery Coaching can be taken from the comfort and safety of your own home or office for the low price of $1329. This price also includes our Best Selling Work Book, all credentials and certifications, job placement for qualified students, AND a complimentary class, Recovery Coach II. This is an offer you just can’t refuse while we are restricted to our homes and offices. There is no better way to capitalize on this extra time at home than to sharpen your skills in the addictions industry and become one of the industry’s top nationally certified professional recovery coaches! Register for all of our classes at http://www.theaddictionsacademy.com or by calling 1-800-706-0318 ext 2. Contact us today to reserve your seat for Nationally Certified Recovery Coaching Level 1 on July 23-24.

At The Addictions Academy, we want you to succeed as a recovery coach, certified interventionist, a sober companion or addiction treatment professional. We know that there are plenty of clients looking for trained, educated addiction professionals but if you are not on a directory, they can not find you! Posting on Facebook is cute, but it only reaches so far. You need a site that is catered to your specialty (there are really none out there), and search engine optimized, to offer you the ability to get clients.

If you trained under Judy Landau (Arise Interventions), CCAR (CART) as a peer coach or even Ken Seeley (BRI interventions), you need a place to be found. We even offer CAN-AM interventionists in Canada to place their information on The Recovery Coach locater site.

We offer video options, hours, direct calls, bio, reviews and more. You need to up your SEO game and you need to get featured as a top interventionist, certified peer recovery coach, certified life coach or certified professional recovery coach.

This is the directory for you. Check it out below and for less than one day at Starbucks you can have a full month of exposure. Limited time option 30 days FREE
