Ethics for Addiction Professionals

Self-study CASASC online training learning outcomes:

  • Gain critical insights into ethical decision-making in addiction counseling.
  • Acquire comprehensive knowledge about the professional and ethical responsibilities of Addiction Counselors.
  • Understand the role of clinical supervision as an ongoing ethical duty in a counselor’s career.
  • Explore the distinctions between virtue ethics and ethical decision-making guided by formal codes.
  • Study formal canons of ethical principles from various counseling associations.
  • Learn about the ethical issues and the importance of maintaining clear client/counselor boundaries.
  • Ethical use of technology, including EHR, EMR, text messaging, Social Media, and E-mail.

Overall I feel that the way the modules were set up made a lot of sense, especially with the way they built off of each other. The pacing was also pretty well done, I never felt overwhelmed and I did pretty well on the tests overall, even with the areas I struggled in.

Graduate and CASAC Studies

The entire training was proper, but I liked that you included audio and visual components. I also liked that you shared several resources and that they will be available going forward as I progress in my hands-on training and career. Of course, the fact that the training was primarily self-paced was a considerable benefit.

CASAC 350 Graduate

This course masterfully presented its content with clarity and precision, making the learning process enjoyable and effective. The quizzes, strategically designed with thought-provoking questions, were crucial in cementing my understanding. They reinforced the material and brilliantly prepared me for the final exams. This harmonious blend of teaching and testing has dramatically deepened my grasp of the subject matter.

— Faith Martell

CASAC 350 Graduate

This has been an absolutely tremendous and humbling experience. I have not done any type of schoolwork outside of the trades. I never saw myself taking copious notes, rereading paragraphs, and looking up words since I graduated high school 20 years ago. Besides learning about a field I am passionate about, the best part of this course is the self-discipline involved in completing the work.
I am so grateful for this opportunity and the support all Educational Enhancement staff has given me. I truly put my all into this, and it is a really good feeling to have completed this part. Thank you all so much.
