Training and Consulting

 outpatient services, outpatient services for substance abuse


We have provided education, training, and consulting services for alcohol and other drug recovery treatment and detoxification programs since 1989. All trainings are based on real experiences that occur in the training room as well as the participants’ life experiences. We challenge the traditional education paradigm of “I lecture, you listen.” We design our curricula so that participants learn and develop; within this framework, they learn how to learn. We offer on-site local, regional, and statewide trainings. Examples of our Training Curricula include:

  • Addiction Behaviors in the Workplace
  • Addicts from the Criminal Justice System
  • Adolescent Recovery Services
  • Anger Management
  • Co-Dependency
  • Domestic Violence/Workplace Violence
  • Healthy Relationships in Recovery
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Program Start-Up/ADP Licensing and Certification
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Staff Ethics and Confidentiality
  • Trauma and Addiction
  • Treatment for Addicts with Mental Illness

Social Model Recovery Systems provides trainings which are highly interactive, utilizing discussion and real life case studies. Philosophically, the contents are grounded in the social therapy movement, post-modern philosophy, and humanistic education ideals.


Our technical consulting produces outcomes to allow agencies to know themselves better. Technical consulting will provide a greater awareness of your agency ideals and strengthen teamwork to better achieve your mission. We offer assistance in a wide variety of subjects, including but not limited to, board development, licensure and certification, policies and procedures, quality assurance, cultural competency, and client retention.

All Consulting services are confidential.
