The Basics of Addiction Counseling (Modules I, II, III)

The Basics of Addiction Counseling Desk Reference is a three-volume set that has aided many addiction professionals in attaining their state and national credentials. Beyond this, the Desk Reference is used as a quick reference tool for various situations that arise throughout addiction professional careers, and as a college/university text for classes such as Addiction 101, Addiction Overview, and other addiction-related course work.

Sneak Peek Module I    |    Sneak Peek Module II    |    Sneak Peek Module III

Module I: Pharmacology of Psychoactive Substance Use, Abuse and Dependence is designed to introduce addiction counselors and other helping professionals to the field of pharmacology and to increase their familiarity with the signs and symptoms of psychoactive substances. Application of effective counseling techniques must contain factual information on the various types of psychoactive substance use, abuse and dependence and their effects on the human body. In this module, the terms alcohol, drug and substance abuse have been exchanged with psychoactive substance use and dependence. These terms are more appropriate in using the pharmacological approach as an educational model.

Please note that this module is currently being updated and will be available by Fall 2017. If possible, we recommend waiting until then to order. We will not offer an exchange for the new version.

Newly updated, Module II: Addiction Counseling Theories, Practices and Skills is designed to provide addiction counselors and other helping professionals with a general overview of the major theories and techniques used for addiction counseling. To be effective, addiction counselors and other helping professionals require concrete methods for correctly assessing clients and conceptualizing the problems associated with each individual. With a strong theoretical base, addiction professionals can more accurately determine the needs of their clients and outline possible directions for treatment.

Based on the NAADAC/NCC AP Code of Ethics , Module III: Ethical and Professional Issues in Addiction Counseling is designed as a teaching tool to assist addiction professionals in maintaining ethical professional practice. This manual contains a detailed discussion of the nine principles of the NAADAC/NCC AP Code of Ethics , as well as models for ethical decision making. In addition, examples of unethical conduct, possible applications of the NAADAC/NCC AP Code of Ethics and reflection questions are included in each chapter to further enhance the proper application of ethics in the addiction profession.

Please note that this module is currently being updated with the new NAADAC/NCC AP Code of Ethics released in Fall 2016. The new module will be available by Fall 2017. If possible, we recommend waiting until then to order. We will not offer an exchange for the new version.

The Desk Reference is not purported to be either all-inclusive or in sufficient detail to ensure success in actual certification/licensure examinations. It MUST be used in conjunction with the examination content outline provided in application materials and the bibliography provided in the Desk Reference modules.

In this module, the terms alcohol, drug and substance abuse have been exchanged with psychoactive substance use and dependence. These terms are more appropriate in using the pharmacological approach as an educational model. 

Before pharmacology can be explored, it is important for addiction counselors and other helping professionals to understand the direct connection between psychoactive substance use, brain functioning and addiction. Addiction is a brain disease mostly characterized by an individual’s inability to control his or her thoughts of and intake of psychoactive substances. It develops after psychoactive substances are repetitively consumed and the brain readjusts to their constant presence. The threshold for the amount of psychoactive substances that an individual can consume before becoming dependent, however, is unclear. This threshold is determined by the individual’s brain chemistry, genetics and environment. Understanding the course of addiction and the effects of psychoactive substances on the human body will allow addiction counselors and other helping professionals to more effectively treat their clients.

Module II: Addiction Counseling Theories, Practices and Skills discusses the main theories and techniques used during each type of counseling dynamic, such as individual, family or group therapy. Within each of these settings, there are many different counseling theories practiced by addiction professionals; however, no one therapy or counseling approach is appropriate for all situations or clients. Depending on the school of thought of the addiction counselor or other helping professional, several theories could be equally applicable to a given situation or client. An addiction counselor or other helping professional must utilize his or her own experience and education to gauge which therapeutic approach would be the most beneficial and effective for the individual client. This part of counseling is often referred to as the “theoretical tool bag” because addiction professionals simply look for and select the best “tools” for the job at hand.

2017 Update includes:

  • DSM-5 diagnostic criteria & newest ASAM criteria.
  • 2016 NAADAC/NCC AP Code of Ethics.
  • Current terminology.
  • Support of evidence-based practice and theory by research. published since last edition.

The Employee Assistance Professional’s Guide to Screening, Brief Intervention and Treatment is a 220-page skill-based training manual on SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment).

Imagine Recovery CD

This compact disc is a collaboration supported by NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, Westbridge Community Services and the artists themselves.

The motivation for this project was to support the professionals who help individuals achieve recovery. Throughout the United States, there are almost 80,000 professionals who work with clients, families and communities to restore hope to people who are suffering from addiction. These challenging economic times have also had an impact on addiction professionals with demand for their services increasing while budgets are being cut, programs are shutting down and professionals are losing their jobs.

This CD has two intended purposes: to share the personal and poignant stories of recovery, sometimes from the perspective of the artists themselves, and to provide support for the 6,000 addiction-focused professionals who have lost their jobs over the last few years.

Revenues from this project will be used to help counselors maintain their certification to practice, and remain a part of the professional community to help them get back on their feet as the economy improves.

This CD is a labor of love, faith and hope: love of music, faith that things will get better and the hope that our individual contributions can help people change for the better.

Powerful and uplifting, it features songs that focus on the positive, as well as tunes that address the powerful, personal recovery stories of the artists involved.

The History of Addiction Counseling in the United States Book

To celebrate its 40th Anniversary, NAADAC is excited to announce the release of The History of Addiction Counseling in the United States: Promoting Personal, Family, and Community Recovery by William L. White, documenting the history of addiction counseling and NAADAC's role in the profession.

Since its inception, addiction counseling has operated without a definitive history of its birth and evolution. Recognizing the need for such a history, NAADAC recruited William (“Bill”) White, the addiction field’s premier historian and author of Slaying the Dragon: The History of Addiction Treatment and Recovery in America and related historical texts, to use the NAADAC archives and voices from the field to construct the history of addiction counseling and NAADAC's role in that history.

We offer special thanks to all those who collaborated with Bill to make this book a reality. It is our hope that this text offers a fitting tribute to the elders who have gone before us, celebrates this generation of addiction professionals, and invites future generations into this esteemed arena of service.


BOOK

This puchase includes the 521-page book.
