About Our Training Program
The Addiction Education program is the oldest substance use training program in the nation, providing extensive opportunities for professional development in substance use prevention, behavioral health and treatment best practices since 1962. This program promotes the recognition of substance use disorders as a major public health concern, maintains a strong focus on special populations, understands the connection with mental health and addresses the need to reduce stigma and connect practitioners with the empirically supported advancements in the field. The Addiction Education program offers a variety of programming and can tailor trainings to meet specific needs. We are accredited to provide continuing education by multiple state and national organizations, including the NJ Department of Health and Senior Services (public health), The Certification Board, Inc. (drug and alcohol counseling), the National Board for Certified Counselors, the National Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors, and the National Association of Social Workers.
