Discussion 2: Clinical Supervision

Clinical supervision is not only needed in the early stages of a career, but is often beneficial if used throughout a career. It is important to understand that clinical supervision is a healthy aspect of clinical work and not an indication of lack of knowledge. No matter how good an addiction professional you are, it is important to consult and connect with other professionals about cases.
