The Addictions Academy Announces The Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation Has Formally Accepted Them As An Approved Educational Institution And Certified Their Core Curriculum
The Addictions Academy recently announced The Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation has completed the review of their Application for Curriculum Review for the Addiction Counseling program and found that it meets their standards for Formal Education.
“A Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor is a career that is in high demand due to the increasing opioid epidemic and lack of qualified professionals to assist with the current crisis,” explained Dr. Estes.
She continued, “It’s wonderful that we can now bring this important training to Canada. And not just for new certifications, but our approval allows us to teach Continuing Education as well.”
The Addictions Academy is the global leader in addiction recovery coach training and certification. Their Certified Addictions Counselor training allows graduates to be at the forefront of helping others with their drug and alcohol addictions. Once enrolled in the program, students receive the 350 hours necessary to understand how to counsel clients with addictions.
Estes said, “Where Addiction Counselors work in the field of addiction varies. Most will work in a professional addiction treatment setting, for a private or nonprofit corporation or even in private practice. We prepare our graduates for all the job roles and functions they will encounter as an addictions counselor.”
The Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation (CACCF) promotes, certifies and monitors the competency of addiction specific counselors in Canada using current and effective practices, which are internationally recognized. The certification CACCF issues and its professional conduct review process provide public protection for counselors, employers, regulatory agencies, clients and their families.
