The Recovery to Practice (RTP) Certificate Program is offered by NAADAC (The Association for Addiction Professionals) and its purpose is to move forward awareness, acceptance and adoption of recovery-based practices in the delivery of addiction-related services. Recovery-based practices are about developing a patient's belief that their challenges and conditions can be overcome. The RTP Certificate Program requires addiction professionals to complete 15.5 CE credits from 9 webinars and another 14.5 CEs from other flexible coursework. The RTP Certificate Program was the result of an award from SAMHSA's Recovery to Practice (RTP) Initiative from 2009 - 2014 and is still being offered today.
