Letter from CTC Operations and Management

Dear Organizational Membership:

In recent months, you have contacted the CTC Organization regarding the CTC Certified 12 Step Consulting Board Certification. The CTC Operations has recently been taken over by the International Institute of Professional Analysts, LLC. With this new management, CTC is building new leadership, membership, and an innovative body of knowledge, testing, and certifications.

As you know, the primary objectives of the CTC Organization are to increase the knowledge and awareness of the use of the 12 Steps for improving the lives of those who suffer from addictions, alcoholism or other related challenges. Moreover, the CTC secondary focus is supporting a Board of Standards which is our leadership for membership, training, evaluation, and certification for our prestigious CTC Certified 12 Step Consultant Credential.

With CTC membership comes certain benefits. Our professional goal is to award recognition to those who have training, experience, knowledge and education in the area of 12 Step Recovery work. Thus, those of you who have passed our online exam who have the 100 relevant hours of professional consulting or practice work are eligible for the CTC Board Certification Documents and CTC Membership Credentials.

With new leadership, CTC is looking for additional people who would be willing to serve on our honorary board of standards. We encourage all to apply who are duly qualified with education and experience. However, we are hoping to build a broad cross section of individuals with MSW, PhD, MD, or other substance abuse and addiction experience & credentials. Additionally, CTC may also develop a CASA CTC Commission on Alcohol and Substance Abuse where you may apply to become an honorary member.

Moreover, CTC will soon launch an online journal. The CTC Journal of 12 Step Recovery. If you desire to have an article published in our online peer reviewed journal, please submit them to              ceuinfo@ceuinfo.com

If you log on to register and pay for your membership and CTC Certification, please submit your preferred mailing address along with correct name spelling for the certificates.

Sincerely and Kindest Regards,
CTC Board of Standards
