Certification requirements

Professionals working in the human-service field whose major responsibilities include prevention, treatment, support, or the care and advocacy of persons with alcohol or other drug problems may apply for certification. Those who specialize in alcohol or drug services can be employed in a variety of environments: churches, schools, business and industry, hospital-based inpatient programs, detoxification centers, halfway houses, recovery support, prisons and jails, the courts, homeless shelters, or public and private outpatient clinics.

Persons interested in certification may request application packets which explain the following requirements in complete detail. ICAADA offers multiple levels of certification. All persons seeking certification must complete the following requirements:

  • Confidential evaluation by the candidate's peers and supervisors who are listed as references on the certification application
  • Written examination passed at the established norm for each respective certification level
  • Personal appearance before the certification board may be requested
  • Payment of all application and certification fees
