Focus on Integrated Treatment

Focus on Integrated Treatment

As a credentialed professional, you’re committed to the highest standards of evidence-based practice, and you know that treatment outcomes are greatly improved when a co-occurring substance use and non-severe mental health disorder are treated concurrently — by the same clinician or treatment team.

You also know that there is an unfortunate lack of easily accessible, quality education opportunities to stay abreast of the latest advancements in practice.

To support our field, IC&RC has made the unprecedented step of partnering with Hazelden, the leading publisher in education, treatment, and behavioral health to bring you Focus on Integrated Treatment (FIT). Available now, FIT is an online training program that gives you the skills you need to successfully provide integrated treatment for your clients living with a co-occurring substance use and non-severe mental health disorder.

How FIT Works

Each of FIT’s 35 modules take no more than 60 minutes each to complete. You may choose to complete the full program, sign on to either the clinician or clinical administrator tract, or to take courses in specific topic areas such as Screening & Assessment, Stagewise Treatment, and Motivational Interviewing. Each module includes videos of real clients sharing their stories, clinical vignettes, interactive exercises, and expert panel sessions. A 10-question test is offered at the conclusion of each module to check your understanding of the lesson.

Earn CEs While You Learn

Because IC&RC values this training so highly, we are offering up to 52.5 CE hours — or 1.5 hours per module — upon successful completion of the 35 FIT modules. The innovative Focus on Integrated Treatment (FIT) program, when combined with your clinical hours, gives you the tools and training needed to get certified or to renew your current certification. You can apply to your local certification board for the hours earned at completion of this program, in combination with their clinical hours, to count toward the renewal of current IC&RC credentials or to achieve the CCDP or CCDPD credential.

CE hours earned with FIT can be applied to the following credentials:

Alcohol and Drug Counselor (ADC)
Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (AADC)
Clinical Supervisor (CS)
Prevention Specialist (PS)
Certified Criminal Justice Addiction Professional (CCJP)
