Recovery Plus: save time, save lives
Leaders of IC&RC – 50,000 members globally –
will gather in London on World Drug Day
At the start of this year, the Federation of
Drug & Alcohol Practitioners closed. Where
does that leave its members? Perhaps with a
better option: the International Certification
& Reciprocity Consortium 'gold standard'
accreditation recognised in over 25 countries.
It is harder to gain but thus more prestigeous.
And a groundbreaking window of opportunity is
being developed in the UK for FDAP members to
smoothly join IC&RC's 50,000 global members.
The accredited world leader.
Since 1981, the International Credentialing &
Reciprocity Consortium – IC&RC – protected the
public by establishing standards and facilitating
reciprocity for professionals since 1981. Today,
IC&RC represents over 50,000 certified
professionals from 78 credentialing and licensing
boards worldwide whose reciprocal agreements
cover 25 countries, 47 US and territories, and
three branches of the US military. Professionals
who hold eligible certifications or licences can
transfer them between these jurisdictions.
Displaying your certificate prominently and using
the logo on professional materials can help you
gain greater professional recognition, enhance
your reputation and confirm your proficiency.
IC&RC's credentials include Alcohol and Drug
Counsellor (ADC), Advanced Alcohol and Drug
Counsellor (AADC), Clinical Superviser (CS), Peer
Recovery (PR) and more. To take an exam or earn
a credential, contact your local board.
To facilitate FDAP members after its closure,
special arrangements will be made to welcome
you to IC&RC and make the transition easier
than it has ever been. A new team of Board
members, with long histories of achievements in
the drug and alcohol treatment & recovery field,
will direct their enthusiasm and energy to your
professional progress and wellbeing. Glynis Read
will be your port of call for recertification
and reciprocity – membership will be in line with
FDAP's previous categories: full and associate.
Norman Beecher will organise training. Recovery
Plus's Deirdre Boyd is developing strategy &
marketing. They will be joined on 26-27 June in
London by the CEO and vice president of IC&RC
head office, to advance progress and answer
your questions face to face. All of them look
forward to catching up with you there!
