"This was the training I have been waiting for............. all the elements of what Recovery Specialists need to know! Totally comprehensive. Training was presented in a fun, engaging and always interesting way. All the blanks have been filled in now!." - Christopher, Recovery Specialist
Recovery Specialists provide a foundation for recovery self-efficacy to be created through improving the relapse response (hijacking effect) within the brain through cognitive apprenticeship, modeling, mentoring, ecological momentary intervention, and inspiring, educating and repeated success. Combining this with cutting edge family theory and a focus on healing and recovery of not only the individual but the family as whole is the basis of the IRI training.
A cutting-edge 5-day training led by top professionals in the field.

"This training has not only reinforced what I already know as a working Recovery Specialist, it has given me new tools and confidence in my ability to implement them!"- Dufflin, Recovery Specialist
"The IRI Certified Recovery Specialist, Level 1 Training recently given in Long Beach, California was informative, insightful, creatively delivered, thought provoking and altogether enjoyable. As a viable component of addiction treatment the curriculum focuses on, where have come from historically, challenges our current knowledge and methodologies but, most importantly the direction we are going towards legitimacy and valorization. As a seasoned professional in the field of 15 years, we are long overdue for an ethical industry standard of this caliber to be set and available to those of us with vast experience or newly entering the field. Empowering us to approach this profession with confidence in a continuum of care that would be an asset to any client and or clinical team at any level of treatment. The balance of history, theory, cooperation, definition, practicality, legalities, ethical behaviors and self regulation within this curriculum was seamlessly melded together through our instructors vast experiential knowledge. After completing the Level 1 Training, it is my opinion that anyone interested in, working as, working with or simply understanding the valuable resource of a Recovery Specialist can benefit from the training offered by IRI. With that, a fond thank you for the time, energy and forward thinking required to compile such an educational body of work. Truly I am looking forward to enrolling in the Advanced Levels and Specialties education to come."
