Advanced CADC Courses

Advanced CADC Courses

While all of Wellspring's online CADC courses can be taken toward both your initial certification or license, as well as the renewal of those credentials (and many others), Wellspring has designed a monthly series of advanced courses for Addiction Counselors who have already earned their CADC or LCADC. Beyond the basics necessary for your initial credentialing, these courses are specialized to bring the most up-to-date research in the field to your practice. By sharing a classroom with other seasoned professionals, you have the opportunity to learn from each other take your skills to the next level. Each year, all new courses are developed to keep your training current and expand your knowledge base.

This comorbidity can be any drug or alcohol diagnosis, combined with any mental health diagnosis (depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, etc.). In most cases, the symptoms and issues related to one can worsen the issues of the other. It essential to address the dual presentation simultaneously, as brain changes take place in the same areas of the brain that are affected by other mental illnesses.
