Our Mission was developed to assist counseling professionals who are working to obtain a credential (licensure or certification) as a drug and/or alcohol counselor.  All states, as well as many countries, recognize drug and alcohol counseling professionals by offering counselor licensure or certification in various ways.  Some states offer licensure and as such, have a state office or agency in charge of such credentialing.  Other states offer credentialing through private certification/credentialing boards, who are  typically members or in cooperation with one of the following bodies: 

  • The American Academy of Health Care Providers;
  • IC&RC (International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium;
    Website - IC&RC;
  • NAADAC - the Association for Addiction Professionals
    Website - NAADAC.

Depending on the credential offered in your state or country, individuals seeking a credential to practice drug and alcohol counseling will be required to obtain a specified number of education and work experience hours, and the pass a written credentialing examination (some credentialing bodies also require an oral examination).  To learn more about requirements in your state or country, or how to contact the appropriate credentialing body, you can visit this website:
