The Alcohol/Drug Council of North Carolina (ADCNC) is a multi-faceted organization specializing primarily in providing information and referral to alcohol and drug treatment around the state. Our mission is to reduce human suffering and the economic cost of alcoholism and other drug addiction. We advocate for prevention, early interventions and treatment that includes a system of care.
In the spirit of our mission, throughout the last year, we expanded our services in a variety of ways. In fall 2013, the ADCNC began assisting people needing help navigating the Marketplace Exchange at Healthcare.gov under funding from the Center for Medicaid and Medicare.
The ADCNC recognizes that the Affordable Care Act impacts the treatment and recovery community in a variety of ways. Our team of navigators remind consumers that “health insurance gives you access to treatment, access to treatment gives you a better chance of recovery”. Our navigators focus on providing education, outreach, and enrollment assistance to individuals in recovery. One of our targets is to provide education on the ACA and the ever-changing health care coverage environment.
We are offering a free online training on “The ACA and the Recovery Community”. Each participant will receive 1.5 Peer Support credit hours or 1.5 NCSAPPB CEU credit hours for completion of this online course. Please follow the instructions below to receive credit. The first 5 people to complete the course are also eligible to attend the Recovery and Health Forum in Salter Path, NC September 18-19, 2014 FREE of charge. This will include conference registration, lodging, and 6 NCSAPPB CEU credits or Peer Support credits.
