Minority Training Project (MTP)

“Building a workplace of professional minority AODA counselors”

The mission of MTP is to develop professionals who are committed to providing quality addiction counseling services. It is our goal to provide minority candidates with mentoring and support as they obtain the training and education to become Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors. This program is best suited to those who already possess some knowledge and skills about substance abuse and addiction. MTP respects the experience and knowledge of participants and builds on this foundation to enhance professional development.

The curriculum of MTP emphasizes the following:

  • The role of the AODA counselor in identifying and treating individuals with addictions.

  • A holistic approach to addressing the bio-psycho-social aspects of this disease.

  • Collaboration with the human service delivery system as a support for long-term recovery.

MTP supports enrollees by offering:

  • An enrollment of a diverse adult population

  • Experienced and knowledgeable training facilitators

  • Experienced Career Consultants as mentors

  • Training opportunities in businesses, colleges and universities throughout the state

  • Paid clinical internships in AODA clinical settings

  • Credit for Human Services coursework toward academic degrees

The education and training curriculum is designed to meet the academic and clinical requirements of the Wisconsin Certification Board (WCB) as well as the Certified Clinical Supervisor (CCS) Credential.
