RCNC Presents the the 2nd cohort of our Certified Recovery-Focused Peer Support training in Wake County beginning in March 2020.
This curriculum is the first of its kind in the state of North Carolina with the primary focus being on recovery from substance use disorders. There is also a significant amount of material in the curriculum which will cover co-occurring mental health conditions and its connection to substance use disorders. We believe those who take this training will be better able to be of service as Peer Support Specialists to those struggling with addiction and will be more aware of their own needs for self-care and support.
RCNC will be providing this state of the art training over 5 weeks, one day a week on Fridays. The training will take place in one of our training rooms from 9am – 4pm. There will be signage to direct you to our entrance. The training dates are March 13th, March 20th, March 27th, April 3rd, and April 10th.
The acceptance process into the training program has changed. We are now requiring that every potential participant complete the online application ASAP. Once your application is approved, you will receive a call from RCNC to review your application and be vetted for appropriateness. There will be no fee for this particular cohort training, thanks to the support, generosity and a grant provided by Wake County Department of Public Health.
All attendees will be need to have completed the Recovery Coach Academy or plan to shortly thereafter this training. It is a requirement for certification that you take both this CPSS training AND RCNCs (CCAR) Recovery Coach Academy Training.
