Overview of Online CADC Training

Online CADC training is available in the form of standalone courses, as well as certificate and degree programs. These courses and programs are typically geared towards working professionals looking to advance their careers, gain knowledge in the field or meet continuing education requirements.

Training Options

Professional Associations and their Providers

Online classes are provided through multiple organizations, including private distance learning centers, public health groups and pharmaceutical companies. Representative courses include:

  • substance abuse prevention
  • detoxification
  • cognitive behavioral therapy
  • pharmacology
  • effective intervention

The National Association of Alcoholism & Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) offers a lifelong online learning series to its membership. It also provides a varied list of approved education programs on its website. Prospective students should check with their respective state licensing agencies to ensure their proposed coursework meets requirements (www.naadac.org).

Colleges and Universities

University certificate and degree programs in public health, behavioral health, psychology and/or social work frequently have courses that address alcohol and drug dependency issues. Most of these programs are offered at the graduate level. Programs may be offered as hybrid programs, which combine on-campus and online learning. Though uncommon, some bachelor's degree programs in addiction counseling that meet national certification requirements are also available partially online.

CADC Requirements

Aspiring CADCs must meet educational and work experience requirements, pass an examination and maintain certification by earning 40 hours of continuing education credits every two years. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), CADCs working in private practice must possess a master's degree and earn licensure. Licensing, certification and educational requirements for CADCs working in a non-private practice environment vary from state to state, so individuals should check with their respective state boards to make sure the appropriate requirements are met.
