TAPNET advocates are Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselors (LCDC) who care about other counselors and want to aide in their success through difficult times. The philosophy of TAPNET is that addiction and mental illness are chronic illnesses and relapse may occur. By serving as an advocate, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping not only the impaired counselors but also protecting the public and maintaining the integrity of the counseling field. TAPNET believes that with the help of volunteer advocates we can give impaired counselors the opportunity to recover and safely return to the field of addiction counseling.
If you are interested in serving as a TAPNET advocate, please complete the Advocate Application below and return it to TAPNET. The board will review your application.

Details of expectations for advocates are contained in the Advocate application.
