WCA President Vicki and President-Elect Jennifer attended ACA's 2017 Institute for Leadership Training, which included a day on the hill to advocate for professional counselors.  

National Advocacy

Right now, there is important legislation underway that would not only aid in getting addiction services to those who need them, but would also allow counselors to be reimbursed by Medicare.

We need counselors to contact your legislators TODAY and tell them to include Medicare legislation, S. 1879/H.R. 3032, in any opioid package. 

You can advocate and make a difference by visiting this website and entering in your information:
