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 (minus licensure and including our unique community college Addiction Studies programs).
