Only CAADE Tiers Follow SAMHSA Career Ladder

The SAMHSA Career Ladder/Model Scopes of Practice is the model for the future of Addiction Counselor Certification and Licensure. It has been implemented in many states and anticipates changes in healthcare laws as well as the growth of Addiction Counseling as a clinical profession with national standards. CAADE's Tiered System is the only model in California that follows the SAMHSA Career Ladder.

Same Names, Same Values: CAADE and Breining

  • As of August 29th, all Breining RAS counselors and registrants have been seamlessly transitioned over to CAADE under our tiered system recognized by the State of California Department of Healthcare Services.
  • While Breining will be transitioning all RAS certified counselors to the CATC certification, Breining WILL still be issuing the RAS Credential nationally and to California counselors, so that they will retain the national recognition (such as making them eligible for NAADAC certifications) that the RAS Credential affords them.
