What are the Nomination Criteria?

Candidates for the program are nominated by their agency director or another supervisor within the addiction treatment agency. It is critical that the agency agree to and allow for the time necessary to complete all requirements, and provide the protégé with opportunities to test new skills. Nominations are screened and selected for the program through an ATTC Selection Committee process. This allows for the selection of individuals who have potential for management and leadership positions, and capitalizes on their willingness to learn, grow and be a part of this dynamic process.

The following Guidelines are utilized in the process of selecting Leadership Institute participants:

  • Employed as a mid-level level manager or in a supervisory position in the field for a minimum of two years;

  • Has a bachelor degree or is certified or licensed as an addictions counselor or other licensed counseling professional;

  • Demonstrates potential for leadership through professional or volunteer memberships, activities and responsibilities;

  • Shows openness to feedback and a willingness to learn; and

  • Is willing to commit to the full Leadership Institute process.

The time commitment involves participation in the following:

  • 5-day Immersion Training

  • Conference calls
