Philosophy

We provide a sound educational curriculum that is holistic and emphasizes the capability of an individual to recover from addiction and other life controlling problems. In this sense our approach is strength based, building on the unique capabilities of the client, the counselor and the recovery coach to promote increased wellness. NTI integrates spiritual truths, a faith perspective and clinical approaches to encourage a bio/ psycho/ social/ spiritual approach to recovery. Our courses provide training to increase personal effectiveness in a variety of ministry settings, as well as job/career training for those seeking job placement and professional advancement.

People who work in addiction counseling and recovery support services are on the front lines of human problems and pain. Therefore NET coursework is designed to support students personally in a way that promotes their continued recovery and personal growth as they learn the knowledge, attitudes and skills for helping others.
