  2. Licensed Associate Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselor (LAADAC)  – holds a baccalaureate degree in the health or behavioral sciences field or other appropriate field from an accredited college or university;
  3. Certified Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Technician (CADAT) – holds a high school diploma or equivalent.

All applications are reviewed by the Credentialing Committee and presented to the Board for approval at the next regularly scheduled meeting following receipt of all required documents.
