For counselors seeking education in co-occurring disorder treatment, CCAPP has partnered with Hazelden Betty Ford to offer Focus on Integrated Treatment (FIT). FIT combines "best practices" in substance use disorder and mental health therapies. The interventions used throughout each of the 35 training modules include evidence-based therapies, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and Twelve Step facilitation. FIT was designed to help counselors build the knowledge and skills needed to successfully integrate the treatment of clients with co-occurring disorders.
CCAPP has partnered with the Distance Learning Center for Addiction Studies to offer online distance learning coursework to individuals seeking credentialing as well as counselors needing continuing education credit. DLCAS.com is the world’s oldest and largest online provider of addiction counselor education and training and is approved by CCAPP as a provider of both basic and continuing education credits.
