Recovery Happens 2014

Written by CAARR on . Posted in Conferences

Recovery Happens is the statewide campaign intended to celebrate the lives of people who are recovering from alcohol and/or drug addiction. Recovery Happens provides the perfect platform to inform Californians about the positive effects that recovery/treatment programs have upon our communities.

The rally usually brings out over 5,000 people for a day of celebration and fun! Because we desire to make this a meaningful and memorable event, a statewide planning committee is formed and meets on a monthly basis to plan and prepare the activities for this day.

More Letters of Support Needed for Drug and Alcohol Counselor Licensure Legislation

Written by CAARR on . Posted in Latest News

CAADAC/CAARR-sponsored legislation Senate Bill 570 (DeSaulnier) will create a license for AOD counselors so that they will be recognized as a resource for providing services under the Affordable Care Act. The license will be mandatory for anyone operating a private practice. This legislation will address the unregulated market of AOD services in private practice. Finally, every counselor in California providing AOD services will be required to be licensed or certified to work in California.

We need your help. We need as many letters as possible from individuals that support drug and alcohol counselors being licensed in the state of California. You don't have to be a drug and alcohol counselor to write a letter. Anyone can write a letter that supports this effort and it only takes two minutes. To send a letter, click the take action link.

Please pass this on to as many people as possible. To send a letter of support from a school, business, agency or program, please visit CAADAC and CAARR's S.B. 570 program support letter page here. To view the bill in its entirety, click here.
