IAAOC Resources

IAAOC Toolbox

A new feature on the website.


The Toolbox has resources that addictions and offender counselors can use in their work.


Member resources on Scholar

IAAOC makes available for its members PowerPoint presentations, podcasts, and past issues of the IAAOC newsletter. We encourage you to bookmark the Scholar page and personalize your password, so you can access it regularly and receive the member benefits.


The Scholar site is hosted by Virginia Tech. It is found at this URL:


To access the IAAOC resources on Scholar:


*If you know the initial password and can log into Scholar, IAAOC members can change their passwords once logged in by going to My Workspace, then "Account." Click Modify Details, then Update your password.


*If you do not know your password, IAAOC members can reset their Scholar passwords by entering their email addresses in the "Reset non-VT Password" box on the homepage. An email should then come to the person with a new password.


To access the IAAOC resources, click the “IAAOC” tab next to the “My workspace” tab. Then, click the “Resources” link on the left side of the page.

IAAOC State Chapters

IAAOC supports the development of State Chapters and can provide assistance and leadership throughout the entire process.

Our objective is to facilitate State Chapter development by providing key information about connecting with State Counseling Associations, soliciting state members, specifications regarding the formation of a state division, and successfully completing the process.

Any IAAOC member interested in establishing a state chapter is encouraged to contact IAAOC’s President, Linda Thompson, at for further information. Ms. Thompson is creating and updating tools to support State Chapter development. Additionally, interested IAAOC members are encouraged to review the IAAOC Bylaws regarding State Chapters.
