Training topics are scheduled quarterly within training suites of prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery. Look to the right-hand side of each training title to see the training suite.  Core required topics to meet NH substance use credentials will be repeated throughout the year. 

We have exciting news:

All participants in trainings hosted by the NH Training Institute on Addictive Disorders may access surveys and certificates on your digital portfolio. Please and follow the instructions in the attached form.   This will allow you to print your own certificates when needed, on demand!

How to Access Certificates Online

To ensure a positive training experience for our participants and trainers, we at NHADACA set a minimum and maximum number of available seats for in-person AND virtual trainings.  Trainings will be cancelled if minimum seats are not reached and closed once maximum seating is reached.

    A 6-hour Training with Scott Meyer, MSW, Ph.D., NH LICSW, BCD

    June 8, 2022

    8:30am–4:00pm 


    This training will be remote only.

As a result of this training participants will:

      • Learn techniques to best respond to a range of challenging ethical dilemmas that can be presented when working with people who have lived experience with mental health and/or substance use concerns;

      • Gain an awareness of how utilizing reflective practice skills will promote desired outcomes in the most ethically sound fashion that is client centered;
      • Learn techniques to best respond to a range of challenging ethical dilemmas that can be presented when working with people who are experiencing mental health and/or substance use concerns; and
      • Learn ethical dilemma prevention techniques to monitor, reflect upon and improve their own use of self and personal boundaries in their professional work with clients who are experiencing mental health and/or substance use concerns.
