The Addictions Academy is Proud to Present (NCHRP) Our National Certificate in Harm Reduction Professional Training


Being a Professional today means being an expert in your respective niche.  You must be well-rounded and know all aspects of your industry. Professionals in the addiction recovery industry today need to have an in-depth understanding of all of the treatment modalities available to clients. It doesn’t mean that the professional has to agree or disagree, approve, or disapprove of any particular modality as the client will choose the modality that they wish to utilize in their own recovery.

Even if the recovery professional happens to be in recovery and experienced in a certain modality, it would be considered unethical for the professional to try to push one modality over another.  Harm reduction (or harm minimization) is a scope of general public health policies intended to lessen the unsafe results connected with different human practices, both lawful and illicit. Harm reduction strategies are utilized to oversee practices, for example, recreational drug use and sexual activities in various settings that range from services through to geographical districts. Faultfinders of harm reduction normally trust that enduring hazardous or unlawful conduct makes an impression on the community that such practices are adequate and that a portion of the activities proposed by defenders of harm reduction don’t decrease hurt over the long haul. Harm Reduction is here like it or not, it is a current modality in the industry that all addiction recovery professionals should be versed in.
