How Does It Work?

The material for each class comes from the ICRC recommended textbook list. Students are required to buy the textbooks. Classwork is done online via the blackboard learning management system.  A syllabus is provided for each course, which describes each week’s assignment. In addition blackboard also provides the assignments due each week.

Our entire program was designed to meet the stringent IC & RC training requirements, and can be finished in about a year. The IC & RC certification is accepted by 47 states and many countries outside the US. The coursework consists of 6 courses and a practicum course.  The courses cover the topics you need to become an effective counselor. Courses like Counseling Methods, Ethics, and Case Management. There is a quiz each week, around 4 assignments during the course and a weekly interactive discussion online.

In fact, we even used the textbooks that are used to create the certification exam as the required reading material for our courses.  While you are reading and learning the course material, you are covering the exact same material that is on the certification exam.  We have designed the entire program to give you the best opportunity to succeed. We even allow you to re-take quizzes – so there is no need to feel as if you can “fail” a course.  If you don’t pass a quiz, simply study some more and re-take the quiz.  Our goal is to give you all the tools you need to be a success as a drug and alcohol counselor.

Achieve the Life You Want To Live

While Helping Others

You came to the Addictions Training Institute Website because you (or someone you know) expresses the desire to:
•    Help other alcoholics and addicts recover
•    Work with a group of professionals all dedicated to helping others
•    Surround yourself with others who are clean and sober
•    Build a career for yourself in a rapidly growing industry
•    Earn more money
•    Give back by helping to alleviate the suffering and pain associated with addiction
•    Make the world a better place by helping those in need

Why Choose ATI?

There are many different types of licensing and certification. Of course, the rules and requirements vary from state to state. And even within a state there can be multiple levels of certification and licensure. Many of these programs can easily cost 50 thousand dollars or more.

The beauty of ATI is the coursework is fully online. You can learn on your own schedule when it is convenient for you. Some people think that online learning doesn’t allow for interaction with instructors. This is another way that the Addictions Training Institute is different. There are scheduled phone and internet based meetings in which you get to speak directly with your instructor. You can ask questions, get feedback, and even learn from the questions and problems posed by other students in the class.

Our courses and training won’t be all that you have to do to earn certification. As mentioned above, every state has different requirements. However, they all expect a certified addictions counselor to have work experience, supervision and to pass an exam. This is all in addition to the hundreds of hours of class time that must also be done.
