Final Report of the ADAMHA/NIAAA Planning Panel on Alcoholism Counselor Credentialing.
Boynton, Susan; And Others
This final report presents the recommendation of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) Planning Panel that a National Credentialing Organization for Alcoholism Counselors be established. Implementation plans for the National Credentialing Organization are presented in three phases. Funding and staffing are discussed. A five-year budget proposal is outlined. An appendix includes an interim report on problems and issues associated with the credentialing of alcoholism treatment personnel. The NIAAA Planning Panel believes that the creation of a National Credentialing Organization for alcoholism counselors can, to a significant degree, achieve the following: (1) improve the care of alcoholic patients; (2) provide recognition for the profession of alcoholism counseling; and (3) provide third-party payers assurances of quality care to alcoholic patients.
