IMPORTANT NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA COUNSELORS: Renewal of your internationally-awarded Breining Institute credentials is separate from the requirement for California SUD counselors to be registered or maintain entry-level certification with CADTP, CAADE or CCAPP.
CADTP accepts all Breining Institute formal education and continuing education courses toward the initial and renewal award of its State-approved CAODC Certification.
More information about the California AOD/SUD counselor certification career track, including Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) is on our “California SUD Career Track” page at this link: California SUD Career Track
