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

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.
