Publication sorts out credentialing standards.

Addiction professionals looking to make sense of the varying licensure, certification and credentialing standards among states for treatment facilities and counselors should obtain a copy of a new publication from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). A National Review of State Alcohol and Drug Treatment Programs and Certification Standards for Substance Abuse Counselors and Prevention Professionals lists state-by-state information in areas such as facility and program approval processes; fees charged; and national accreditations accepted in lieu of state accreditation.

The publication also includes information on types of treatment services provided by states. Copies of the publication are available free of charge from the National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information (NCADI). To obtain a copy, call (800) 729-6686 or visit
