"An innovative approach using technology to teach, certify, and oversee addictions counseling competencies in the classroom and in the field."
The Idaho Board of Alcohol/Drug Counselor's Certification, Inc. has membership in the International Certification Reciprocity Consortium/Alcohol and Other Drugs of Abuse (ICRA/AODA).
Certified Alcohol/Drug Counselors, Certified Clinical Supervisors, and Certified Prevention Specialists who possess valid certification from IBADCC can request reciprocal recognition from other ICRC member states and bodies. These levels of certification may obtain IBADCC credentialing upon application, without re-testing, providing they are from a member state or body possessing these credentials. Reciprocity is not granted in a non-member state.
You must live or work in the state in which you are applying for reciprocity. You may retain more than one state or body certification by paying fees to each certifying body.
The Idaho Student of Addiction Studies (ISAS) is an entrance level recognized in the State of Idaho only. It does not carry reciprocity. This entrance level was developed as a credentialed entrance level while obtaining education and work experience toward a CADC.
If an individual is interested in the reciprocity procedures, they may be obtained by contacting their certification office.
