Recovery from substance use disorders is more than just not using alcohol or other substances. It is more than just going through substance use disorder treatment. It is a long-term process of learning to live life and solve problems without alcohol or other drugs. Long-term support is often necessary for individuals with substance use disorders to achieve and sustain recovery.
Both of the URC courses focus on equipping participants with core competencies and skills to work as a recovery support professional. One course is designed for those individuals who themselves are in recovery from a substance use disorder and the other is for those individuals who do not identify as being in recovery. Successful completion of either one of the recovery-focused courses will allow participants to become eligible to sit for an exam through the Global Centre for Credentialing and Certification (GCCC) to qualify to work as a recovery support professional in the field.
