ICAADA has been awarded a 3-year, $2.63 million dollar grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to provide training, credentialing, and access to Department of Labor approved apprenticeships to build the Certified Addiction Peer Recovery Coach (CAPRC) workforce across Indiana.
In partnership with MHAI Stanley W. DeKemper Training Institute and Indiana Association of Peer Recovery Support Services (IAPRSS), the Peers Advancing Total Community Health (PATCH) program will expand the public health workforce in Indiana by training new, and existing, peer recovery coaches with specialized training. The program’s goal is to provide training so that participants will complete the required trainings and become newly credentialed Certified Addiction Peer Recovery Coaches (CAPRC) through ICAADA.
Upon completion of Certified Addiction Peer Recovery Coach (CAPRC) required courses, the applicant will be eligible to apply, and obtain, the CAPRC offered through ICAADA. The scholarship will cover the following cost related to credentialing:
- ICAADA membership
- CAPRC credentialing fee
- CAPRC exam fee
Once a scholarship recipient completes the course work and CAPRC credentialing, they will be eligible to complete a Department of Labor approved apprenticeship.
