Which one is best for you?
The LCDC Exam Review study guide covers the topics on the IC&RC Alcohol and Drug Counselor (ADC) certification exam, while the LCDC Exam Review blog offers information on all things substance abuse counseling. If you are preparing to take the certification exam, your best option is to subscribe to the online study guide. If you just want to refresh your knowledge and keep yourself up to date on everything related to substance abuse counseling, just subscribe to follow the blog.

What the online study guide is.
This online review is a self-study online class where you access the materials at your convenience and study at your own pace. Registered participants have the option to schedule a coaching lesson with me and together we can review specific material. This online review was created in a virtual learning system very similar to Blackboard, Canvas, and Coursera. Participants have the option to interact with other registered users through the discussion forum.
What the online study guide is not.
This online review is not a traditional online class with video-lectures, assignments, grades, quizzes, attendance, etc. This online review does not offer a certificate of completion nor CEUs.
Why you have to pay for it.
Unlike the blog, this online review was carefully put together after I took and passed the LCDC exam. Although it includes many of the articles published and shared for free on my blog, it also includes notes and material exclusively for the exam; before taking the exam I studied and read all kinds of information that I thought was going to be part of the exam and, at the same time, forgot to cover some material that was included on the exam. After taking the exam I learned the difference between important information, but irrelevant for the exam, and important information that was relevant and totally included on the LCDC exam. I also take the time to maintain the online review material by replying to comments, answering questions about the material, and improving the content for more clarity, based on the participants feedback.
This online review is that, a review. It is not an official study guide and that is why you pay an affordable price. Some official study guides and workshops are not only expensive and inconvenient, but also packed with information that is not useful, clear, or relevant to actual IC&RC ADC exam. When you subscribe to my online review, you have access to the information 24/7 during your subscription, and you can access it from any computer (as long as you have your access code and internet); you can print out some of the information, and you can contact me for feedback and coaching on some of the materials, including the Case Study.
