Alcohol and Drug Counselors in the state of Maine must meet outdated recertification requirements that allow for only 10 hours of online training every two years. While our LCPC friends can meet ALL of their recertification requirements online, we must bear the expense in terms of time, transportation and cost. Due to economic forces many of our employers have curtailed or eliminated reimbursement, placing the burden on our shoulders. We ask that the Maine Board of Alcohol and Drug Counselors act immediately to rectify this inequity and allow CADCs, LADCs and CCSs to gain up to 50% of their required recertification hours from recognized, approved providers such as NAADAC, Adcare, etc.

Peter Fuller, LCSW, LADC, United States2 years ago Comments: I'd like to see the State of Maine provide a number of free offerings each year to insure people are able to acquire the information they need. The offerings could be on-line or in person.
Judith Bridges, United States2 years ago Comments: I would like to see more on-line classes available for CADC's and LADC's which would give us more CEU's.
