Attention: The rules for licensure for Addiction Counselors and Clinical Addiction Counselors went into effect on August 29, 2012. Once the Board begins offering licensure by examination, the Grandfathering period ends according to statute. Please note that this occurred at the Board's November 26, 2012 meeting. Grandfathering Applications must have been received before that date. You can obtain the Grandfathering information here.
