NAADAC has established a set of ethical best-practices that apply to universal ethical deliberation. It was written to govern the conduct of its members and it is the accepted standard of conduct for addiction professionals certified by the National Certification Commission. The code of ethics reflects ideals of NAADAC and its members. The NAADAC Code of Ethics is designed as a statement of the values of the profession and as a guide for making clinical decisions.
NDBACE refers to the NAADAC Code of Ethics to guide the certification process and to evaluate the behavior of addiction professionals when an ethic complaint is filed.
