Addiction Recovery and Intimate Violence (ARIV) Online Course

Addiction Recovery and Intimate Violence logo

About the Course:

This 5-hour self-paced course is based on industry awareness that Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a frequent issue for clients. Addiction counselors and peer-recovery specialists understand that Intimate Partner Violence impairs the opportunity for recovery (Illinois Department of Human Services, 2005; SAMHSA, 1997). However, they are often less familiar with a systematic and easily integrated method for dealing with such issues. The ARIV model (and this course) was created to fill that need.
