About certification

Certification is the process for ICAADA to evaluate an individual's experience, education, training, knowledge, and competency as an addiction professional. ICAADA's certification board is in charge of the certification process. ICAADA's certification board is made of elected members of ICAADA, with alternates, and at least one member appointed by the ICAADA certification chairperson. It is the intention of the board to issue a credential based on the sum total of the applicant's experience, training, peer review, and overall judgement of service to the addictions constituency.

ICAADA's certification board assumes responsibility when assessing applicants and their portfolios, and may require additional documents or information.

Every effort to function with maximum members present. In doing so, the Board will be employing an approach that is most favorable to the applicant.

If you have questions about ICAADA's certification process, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the ICAADA team.
