Alcohol and Drug Counselors in the state of Maine must meet outdated recertification requirements that allow for only 10 hours of online training every two years.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.
