About the Certified Multiple Addiction Therapist (CMAT) Certification
Have you ever had a client that, regardless of how much work he or she does, always relapses? Almost 50% of people suffering from an addiction have more than one addiction. Not assessing for multiple addictions and identifying how they interact with one another can inhibit or delay a client’s recovery. Because of this IITAP has developed the multiple addiction certification to help practitioners treat co-occurring disorders. Practitioners have the opportunity to expand their knowledge in the following areas:
• Chemical & Alcohol Dependency
• Financial Disorders
• Eating Disorders
To be eligible to become a CMAT you must meet one of the two following credentials:
1. Currently IITAP Certified;
