A Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC) provides counseling, education and support to clients with substance abuse issues and their families.   CADC job responsibilities include individual and group counseling, assessment and referral services. CADCs work at a variety of  settings including: community clinics, inpatient, partial outpatient, and outpatient facilities. According to the Department of Labor, CADCs have a projected job growth of 22% in the next 5 years.

You can become a CADC by completing a 6 course certification program.  Students who complete the 6-course program with a specific GPA will have the GRE requirement waived when applying for the master’s program in Addictions Counseling, and the 6 courses will be transferred into the master’s if admitted!
