For over 10 years, The Addiction Connection has been offering genuinely biblical resources.

In celebration of a decade in ministry, we want to share 10 ways we continue to Connect the Hope of the Gospel with the Heart of Addiction:

1. Free podcasts on current addiction topics, featuring leaders in addictions biblical counseling

2. Recommended Resources

3. Commissioned Addictions Biblical Counselor (CABC)

  • Relationship-based, interactive training process that both leaders and applicants enjoy!
  • Over 100 individuals are credentialed with TAC and many more are in the process now.

4. Addictions Counseling Specialization: for those certified with ACBC

  • Partnering with Grace Counseling Center (Florence, KY), we host the required educational phase for the Addictions Counseling Specialization credential with the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC).
  • Eligible candidates for this online, on-demand video training are those who are already ACBC certified, and who choose to further sharpen their skills in addictions biblical counseling.
  • After completing TAC’s Educational Phase, the Examination Phase is then completed with ACBC.
  • Essentially, we recommend either pathway (CABC or ACBC Specialization).
  • To learn more, please email Lisa at [email protected].
