NAADAC-approved


Breining is a NAADAC-approved Education Provider

Breining Institute is pleased to report it is one of the distinguished educational institutions that have earned formal Education Provider approval status from the nationally-recognized NAADAC – The Association for Addiction Professionals.

This is what NAADAC says about the approval: “The NAADAC Approved Education Provider logo signifies that an organization has voluntarily opened its educational programs to examination by the National Certification Commission for Addiction Professionals (NCC AP) for content applicability to state, national, and international certification standards. This rigorous review process ensures that learners receive a consistent, reliable, and quality learning experience that is applicable to their careers and advances their understanding of addiction and co-occurring disorders-related issues.”

“We are especially pleased with this education provider recognition,” said Michael J. Breining, President,” because it was earned from NAADAC, a widely-respected and nationally-recognized leader in the setting of high standards for the addiction counseling profession.”

NAADAC approval recognized by many State-licensing/certification agencies

Individuals participating in educational programs offered by NAADAC Approved Education Providers are assured that they will be accepted toward national credentialing by NCC AP, and NAADAC reports that “NAADAC-approved education is automatically accepted by many state licensure/certification boards for many professions.” (Check with your local license or certification agency for confirmation.)
