Addiction Treatment in Military & Veteran Culture Certificate

Almost one out of every three veterans seeking treatment for a substance use disorder (SUD) also has post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is important to learn the diagnostic criteria, evidence-based treatment, and commonly associated problems with co-occurring SUD and PTSD. However, it is equally important to understand the unique culture of service members, veterans, and their families. With the goal of supporting those who serve and their families, NAADAC presents the specialty online training series Addiction Treatment in Military & Veteran Culture, presented by Duane K. L. France, MA, MBA, LPC. Upon completion of the training series, individuals may apply for the Addiction Treatment in Military & Veteran Culture Certificate.

Clinical Supervision in the Addiction Profession Certificate

Effective and quality clinical supervision impacts overall care and treatment of our patients. Numerous studies point to the quality of the supervisory relationship as a consistent predictor of therapeutic outcomes. However, many addiction treatment providers still report inconsistent supervision experiences, and there is a gap for updated best practices that are specific to clinical supervision in the addiction profession. As a guided companion to the most up to date information on Clinical Supervision: An Overview of Functions, Processes, and Methodology, NAADAC presents the specialty online training series Clinical Supervision in the Addiction Profession. Upon completion of the training series, individuals may apply for the Clinical Supervision in the Addiction Profession Certificate.
