Who is this Training for?

From beginner to expert, everyone learns from being in the same room together for three days, exploring best practices and new ideas. The classroom is comprised of a wide range of professional backgrounds, including those interested in making a career change, new interventionists, professionally certified interventionists, and more recently clinicians, social workers, marketing and outreach professionals and a variety of others working in the addiction, recovery and treatment fields.
