Advocacy CRPS

Advocating for substance abuse clients involves addressing the multifaceted challenges of stigma, social injustice, and discrimination that can hinder recovery and access to treatment. This advocacy is essential for protecting the rights of individuals affected by factors such as race, culture, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and disability. Effective strategies include educating the public to reduce stigma, promoting policies that ensure equitable treatment access, and empowering clients through self-advocacy skills. Advocates play a crucial role in influencing and negotiating with policymakers and stakeholders to support these changes.

This course is approved by the Florida Certification Board for those seeking a Certified Recovery Peer Specialist credential.  It meets the 4-hour requirement for the Advocacy Domain.
