Assessment of Addiction Treatment Counselors at Publicly Supported Treatment Facilities in the State of Nevada.
Testa, Alec M.; Fisher, Gary L.
In January of 1994 the Addictions Training Center at the University of Nevada, Reno surveyed the treatment staff and directors at 46 publicly supported addictions training centers located in the state of Nevada. Four hundred twenty-nine surveys were mailed, and 189 were returned. In addition to demographic information, respondents were surveyed on education and training, licensure, treatment setting, knowledge, ability, and interest in training in 47 areas. It was discovered that over 40% of respondents who identified themselves as counselors and therapists did not possess the baccalaureate degree. Thirty-one percent had obtained the master's degree or higher. Recommendations are made for the Addictions Training Center to offer programs in counseling skills for individuals, groups and families, and in treatment planning issues. (Author)
