About Our Institute

The Addictions Training Institute (ATI) was founded in order to meet the increasing need for well trained professionals in the field of substance abuse counseling. ATI developed its training program around the IC&RC standards which are used by 76 boards, including 47 U.S. states and territories and all branches of the U.S. Armed Force.

We provide students with an affordable and flexible way to complete the required training to become a certified drug counselor in order to accomplish our mission to make the world a better place by training the people who help others.

Online school for addiction studies from the comfort of your home.

Why Choose ATI?

We only use instructors with both academic credentials and experience working in the field of substance abuse, so you know you are learning from a seasoned professional. We have also based our curriculum and required reading around the books used to develop the IC & RC exam. You are learning from the same sources that are used to develop the credentialing examination.

Self Development

Self-Development is a process of actively trying to improve oneself in various aspects of their life. It is the pursuit of improving oneself by honing their personal skills, competencies, talents, and knowledge. The Addictions Training Institute will give you the skills needed to reach your goals and make your dreams come true.

The War on Addiction

The War on Addiction is not the same as the war on drugs. While the war on drugs has focused on goals meant to suppress, The War on Addiction has always been about uplifting people. The War on Addiction is meant to support and heal those who suffer from substance abuse so that they may rejoin society as productive members. This line of thinking has brought us things like AA, NA, rehabilitation, and the Addictions Training Institute. The War on Addiction reminds us that we are all people first, not what others label us as.


ATI prides itself on both its diverse alumni network and their participation with current students. Alumni and students alike are encouraged to reach out to one another and discuss life post-graduation. Many of our students find these talks to be helpful and alumni enjoy being able to make connections with future professionals or their peers. Our diverse alumni range from clinical directors, to counselors, and from CEOs to support staff. Where will you find yourself?
