The advent and evolution of electronic and digital hardware towards computers, laptops and tablets, the creation of smart phones, the ability to see without being physically present, and the desire for instantaneous connection through social media has created a paradigm shift that will dramatically influence all clinicians. Therapists and allied service providers will have to wrestle with (a) how they and their clients define treatment, (b) how to deliver services that are ethical and timely, and (c) how to maintain professional versus personal boundaries. This free webinar will discuss e‐counseling, social media, and digital communication with clients in your addiction counseling practice, and highlight the areas of the NAADAC Ethics Code that relate to these topics. Examples, scenarios and case-studies will be woven into this informative hour.

The addiction profession has a strong foundation of peer involvement. In fact, the earliest addiction professionals were the first peer recovery coaches informed by Alcoholics Anonymous. However, recent shifts within the workforce has led to some discomfort and questions about where the newly arising peer recovery coaches will “fit” into the overall services of the addiction treatment and recovery spectrum.
This free webinar will provide a comparison between a modern addiction counselor and peer recovery coach in regards to current roles, scope of practice, career ladder, ethical considerations and supervision needs. The presenter will also discuss different models of peer recovery supports, including details about how they are delivered, by whom, where, and reimbursement.
