Ethically, addiction counselors and allied service providers have an obligation to protect their clients, their communities, and their career through the provision of ethical services.
Ethics are more than just a written code that addiction professionals are expected to follow – they are the moral principles that underly every aspect of this work. The Ethics In Practice Specialty Online Training Series will provide a thorough dive into the NAADAC/NCC AP Code of Ethics, bringing to life how the code plays out in the work of addiction professionals and ways to handle and avoid ethical dilemmas.
This series is designed to accompany the NAADAC/NCC AP Code of Ethics.
Upon completion of the training series, individuals may apply for the Ethics in Practice Certificate.
