COMPREHENSIVE EDUCATION SERVICES (a wholly owned subsidiary of The Florida Certification Board) brings you the new IC&RC Alcohol and Drug Counselor (ADC) Certification Examination Study Guide (2016), 3rd edition.

Printed for the first time in full color, this 208 page Study Guide prepares you for the 2015 International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) Alcohol and Drug Counselor certification examination. The text is completely updated and in alignment with the new IC&RC ADC examination blueprint which encompasses four performance domains and thirty-three job tasks.

The Study Guide contains comprehensive, easy to read chapters covering:

  • Chapter 1 – Understanding Addiction
  • Chapter 2 – IC&RC Domain I – Screening, Assessment and Engagement
  • Chapter 3 – IC&RC Domain II – Treatment Planning, Collaboration and Referral
  • Chapter 4 – IC&RC Domain III – Counseling
  • Chapter 5 – IC&RC Domain IV – Professional and Ethical Responsibility

Chapter 1 provides an overview of addiction and drugs of abuse, plus current perspectives on recovery. Basic knowledge of addiction is not identified as a separate domain in the job task analysis, but this core knowledge is the foundation of professional practice in addiction counseling. In Chapters 2 – 5, the job task statements are interspersed within the text to match review content with each task for ease of studying. Each chapter is fully referenced and contains a Resources section to direct the learner to other sources that augment the Study Guide content.
