Certification is the process of evaluating an individual's experience, education, training, knowledge and competency as an addiction professional.  This function is accomplished by ICAADA's Certification Board, which is composed of elected members of ICAADA, with alternates, and at least one member appointed by the ICAADA Certification Chairperson.  it is the intention of the Board to issue a credential based on the sum total of the applicant's experience, training, peer review, and overall judgement of service to the addictions constituency.

In developing a system for Certification, the Board will assume broad powers in assessing applicants and their portfolios.  With these broad powers in assessing different categories of service, the Board may require additional evidence or information.

The Board, within its rules, will make every effort to function with maximum members present.  In doing so, the Board will be employing an approach that is most favorable to the applicant.  Board members will encourage an open dialogue with the applicant.  However, the Board will respect all confidential material, oral or written.

The Certification Board may enlist technical assistance and consultation, as required from the Division of Mental Health and Addiction and other sources.

Board members who are named as a reference for an applicant will abstain from voting on the certification of that applicant.

For questions about certification, please call our office at 317-923-8800 between 10-4, Monday through Friday.
