Nationally Certified Harm Reduction Coach

The Addictions Academy is Proud to Present (NCHRC)

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. You need to be well versed in all aspects of addiction and treatment
