ICCA Endorses CCJP

This spring, the International Community Corrections Association (ICCA), a membership organization dedicated to promoting community-based corrections for adults and juveniles and enhancing public safety, endorsed IC&RC’s Certified Criminal Justice Addictions Professional credential. ICCA’s support recognizes that the criminal justice system needs addiction professionals versed in a wide range of disciplines, including criminal justice, addictions and other human service disciplines.  The ICCA issued a statement that read: “Well-trained Criminal Justice Counselors provide the optimal opportunity for successful prevention, intervention and treatment of substance use disorders and related problems.” 
 
In addition, IC&RC is currently working with the Federal Bureau of Prisons to add the CCJP to their list of approved credentials. We are very excited about the addition of these new agencies and look forward to working with them to improve treatment for offender populations.
