    Revises the proposed changes regarding the supervision requirements for certified alcohol and drug counselors and certified criminal justice addictions professionals set forth in GS 90-113.37A. Maintains rather than eliminates ongoing supervision requirements of certified criminal justice addictions professionals, requiring specified documentation of supervision at a ratio of one hour of supervision to every 40 hours of practice after certification by the Board, though no longer requires the supervision contract to be submitted on a form provided by the Board to the Board. Sets the following supervision ratios for practicing certified criminal justice addictions professionals to reduce required supervision hours by practice experience, requiring one hour of supervision to every 80 hours of practice after two years of certification, and one hour of supervision to every 160 hours of practice after four years of practice.
