The National Association for Addiction Professionals (NAADAC), under a sub-contract from DSG (Disability Specialty Group) for SAMHSA’s Recovery to Practice Initiative, has recently completed a “situational analysis” of the recovery workforce. The analysis provides a snapshot of how the addiction profession currently views and uses the concepts, services, and practices of recovery. NAADAC will build on the opportunities and challenges discovered in this process to create a recovery-oriented training curriculum to better serve the addiction profession. It is a nine-module web-based training for clinicians and peers that began in January and will run through 2014, featuring national experts on recovery, recovery-focused practice and peer roles in practice.
