Addiction: A Disease of Our Survival System | Malcolm Horn | TEDxBillings

She is certified as an SAP (Substance Abuse Professional) to conduct assessments for those with a safety-sensitive position under the Department of Transportation. She also has accreditation from the NAADAC (National Association of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Counselors) as a Master Level Addiction Counselor (MAC).

Malcolm currently works at Rimrock Foundation and is responsible for ongoing training and education for clinical and support staff. She is passionate about our systems of care and how we can change systems to improve our health and outcomes.
