Continuing Education

All licensed addiction counselors are required to complete a minimum of 40 contact hours of continuing education in a two-year period beginning January 1st of even-numbered years, at least six hours of which must be on the topic of professional
ethics.

Board approved continuing education must:

▪ Be directly related to or supportive of addiction counseling practice

▪ Enhance the addiction counselor’s professional development and competence

Board approved continuing education can include workshops, refresher courses, in-service training at addiction facilities, professional conferences, seminars, and education programs presented by organizations such as NAADAC, or educational, and national or state health organizations. For more information, review a complete list of Guidelines for Continuing Education.
