Certificate in Ethics Training (NCEC)

The Addictions Academy’s Ethics Training course holds our students to the highest standards in the industry. Our students are professionals; our code of ethics and responsibilities is considered paramount in all of our training courses. Areas to be covered will include fraud related conduct, safety and welfare, confidentiality, professional standards, sexual misconduct, unlawful conduct, record keeping, exploitation, unqualified practice, cooperation during investigation, working in different states, definitions, report writing, dos and don’ts, case management, action plans, and scenarios.

Most people start to yawn when you say the word ethics. The truth is, there is a great deal more to ethics and responsibilities then most professionals ever imagined. Being on solid ground ethically will make all the difference when it comes to success and failure. You don’t ever want to be on the wrong side of ethics. You have boundaries and rules that must be followed and you are responsible to know what they are! The good news is that learning about ethics doesn’t have to be boring! Through role play and student interaction, interjecting different scenarios into the class setting for the students to solve is usually quite fun and entertaining, as well as informative. Remember that knowledge is power.

Nationally Certified Gambling Coach (NCGAC)

Nationally Certified Gambling Addiction Coach (NCGAC)




gambling addiction picProblem gambling, or ludomania, is an urge to continuously gamble despite harmful negative consequences or a desire to stop. Problem gambling often is defined by whether harm is experienced by the gambler or others, rather than by the gambler’s behavior. Severe problem gambling may be diagnosed as clinical pathological gambling if the gambler meets certain criteria. Pathological gambling is a common disorder that is associated with both social and family costs. “Pathological gambling” is the most severe form of problem gambling and has been recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as a disease since 1980. Gaming or gambling is supposed to be for fun, for entertainment.

Teenagers are 3 to 4 times more likely to become problem gamblers than adults. 90% of High School students have gambled at least once in the last year. In the USA ages 14-21, 2.1% struggle with Problem Gambling, another 6.5% are at risk. Every year, 2% -3%, 2M U.S. adults are estimated to meet the criteria for disordered gambling, while another 4-6M individuals are problem gamblers at risk for serious addiction consequences. Men make up 2/3 majority of Problem Gamblers.

In the United States, a report by the National Council on Problem Gambling showed approximately one in five pathological gamblers attempts suicide. The Council also said suicide rates among pathological gamblers are higher than any other addictive disorder. The Suicide rate is higher for people who gamble, and for their families. Those with mental health issues are at an even greater risk. Those addicted to illicit drugs and alcohol are also at greater risk.

Even the tough economy that we’re all living with doesn’t stop gambling. The hope of the big win keeps the rich and the poor gambling. The recent closings of The Revel Casino and The Showboat casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey show that the casino industry isn’t doing that well. People have less money for entertainment. The pathological gamblers won’t slow down because of the economy. In fact, it may even make the situation more extreme.

 This is a great course that you cannot afford to miss, if you are a recovery coach you will be more rounded and knowledgeable as an expert. A Must for Those training to be Master Addiction Coaches. You Can Bet On It!     –RevKev

As a Gambling Addiction Coach you will address both problem gambling and compulsive gambling with your clients. Similar to a drug or alcohol addiction, the gambling or gaming becomes a need and a compulsion to not only entertain but remove specific feelings of stress, anger, discord, etc. As a Gambling Addiction Coach we address these feelings, needs and compulsions with our clients and provide new coping skills and ways of structuring their lives that are productive and meaningful.

“Problem gambling” is any gambling behavior that disrupts your client’s life. If you find your client obsessing over the next bet, the next scratch off or the next win, they need some assistance.  Maybe they have gotten the drugs and alcohol addiction under control and now they are playing dice or poker incessantly. Maybe the primary addiction is gambling. As a Gambling Addiction Coach you will be taught about the natural release of endorphins that gambling produces, similar to sex, exercise and happy surprises. Gambling is a process addiction and hard to control. At The Addictions Academy we will teach you tips and tricks on getting a client’s gambling addiction under control. National Certification in Gambling Addiction.

If your client is preoccupied with gambling, spending more and more time and money on the ‘win’, chasing losses, or gambling despite serious consequences, they have a gambling problem. Gambling addiction, also known as compulsive gambling, is a type of impulse-control disorder. Compulsive gamblers are not able to control the impulse to gamble, and it becomes a source of stress reduction and release, similar to drug addiction or alcohol addiction.

In our Gambling Addiction Course and Gambling Addiction Certification  we will discuss different types of gambling or gaming: from casinos, to online, lotto, dice and street gambling, horseraces and dog track, sports betting and more will be covered. It is important to understand what styles and types of gambling and gaming there are and we cover the terminology of all styles and types of gambling and how to curtail the behaviors and how to handle the compulsions despite the consequences of the problem behaviors.

Nationally Certified Family Recovery Coaching (NCFRC)

Nationally Certified Family Coach Training

Nationally Certified Family Recovery Coaching (NCFRC)

Family Recovery Coach TrainingOur program in Family Recovery Coaching is comprehensive and will teach you, the professional coach, to be able to work with and assist the family during their difficult times.  As much as an addict needs a coach, so does the family, and there are currently no programs available to teach you, the professional, how to deal with the family dynamics.  Families of an addict are often confused themselves about addiction and where to turn with some of the issues that are going on within the family dynamic system. As a Therapist or Recovery Coach, you are trained to handle the addict but often the family is left alone to deal with their issues without help. They become abandoned once the loved one enters treatment or even left to coach themselves on what to do if the loved one refuses treatment.

Family Coaches deal with families that are confused and not sure what to do while their loved one is in treatment or even during the period where they are actively using. Often the family has been enabling the addict so long that when the addict goes into to treatment they feel lost and confused. Sometimes they even expect the addict to come home after 28 days or so ‘cured’ and ‘fixed’. As Professionals, we know that is not the case, but the family does not. There is a great need for Professional Family Coaches to pick up the pieces before, during and after their loved one gets help.

Up until now the best we were able to recommend to the family was to go to Al-anon or ‘family day’ at the drug and alcohol treatment facility. Now, The Addictions Academy can offer so much more, including a Certification in Family Recovery Coaching. As a Family Recovery Coach, you will be able to assist the families of the addicts that so desperately need assistance with a troubled loved one.

What you will learn in our Family Recovery Coaching Training:

  • The dynamics of the family system.
  • Family roles and Claudia Black’s work within the family system.
  • Defense Mechanisms of the family unit.
  • Steps to solidify the family unit.
  • Preparation for treatment of the addict or return from treatment.
  • How to set boundaries and consequences with the loved one.
  • Education of addiction and addictive behaviors with in the family system.
  • Spotting hidden blame, anger and resentments and working through those.
  • Pharmacology, types of drugs both legal and street will be discussed.
  • Qualifying the family as a client.

In our Family Recovery Coaching Certification, role play and real live scenarios will be used so that you are ready to tackle any issues or concerns as they arise.

The Professional Value of Courses:
