Sponsor: New Hampshire Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counselors Association
PRESENTATION: This 2-hour workshop will provide an overview of the Alc 300 rules adopted by the NH Board of Licensing for Alcohol & Other Drug Use Professionals in October 2016 as well as the Alc 400 rules adopted July 2018. The 300 rules describe the requirements for initial certification as a certified recovery support worker and the 400 rules describe the recertification and supervision requirements. We will examine the certification requirements for the CRSW credential as well as the scope of service and requirements described in State statute (RSA 330:C). Upon completion of this workshop participants will be able to access the administrative rules online and reference the sections pertaining to CRSW certification. They will be able to describe the role of the International Credentialing & Reciprocity Consortium for New Hampshire substance use credentialing. Participants will also have an increased confidence in being able to answer questions about credentialing for both the people they supervise toward the credential or in their own pursuit of the credentials. NASW/NBCC contact hours are not available for this workshop.
