Noeticus Addiction Counselor Clinical Training Program:


Providing High-Quality, OBH-Approved Training for Addiction Counselors 

The Center for Professional Development at Noeticus Counseling Center and Training Institute is delighted to offer a variety of professional trainings designed to meet the requirements set forth by theColorado Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) and managed by theColorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) for the Certified and/or Licensed Addiction Counselor credentials (CAC/LAC).

There are four levels of addiction counselor credentialing in Colorado and each is associated with a different level of training, experience, supervision, responsibility, and restriction. They are as follows:

  • Certified Addiction Counselor; Level One (CACI); Entry Level
  • Certified Addiction Counselor; Level Two (CACII); Independent Practice Level
  • Certified Addiction Counselor; Level Three (CACIII); Supervisory Level
  • Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC); Supervisory Level with Privileges of Licensure

OBH has identified two pathways by which to earn addiction counselor credentials in Colorado. Pathway 1 is typically reserved for individuals who have a high school diploma or equivalent. Such individuals are eligible to earn a CACI or CACII. Individuals with a bachelor level degree in the behavioral health sciences are eligible to earn a CACIII. They may earn their CACI and CACII through a combination of clinically supervised work experience hours and OBH approved trainings. Individuals obtaining the CACIII must provide proof of passing a national exam in addition to the previous requirements.

Individuals with advanced degrees are also eligible to use Pathway 1, however they are typically directed to Pathway 2. Pathway 2 is only for individuals who hold a clinical masters or doctoral degree. They may earn their CACII, CACIII, and/or LAC through a combination of clinically supervised work experience hours, OBH approved trainings (or approved college equivalents), and proof of passing a national exam.

The curriculum of the Addiction Counselor Clinical Training Program at Noeticus is primarily designed to provide the OBH required training for counselors utilizing Track 2. Thus the majority of attendees at our trainings have completed or are in the process of completing a clinical master's degree. This does not preclude Track 1 individuals from taking our courses, but the curriculum is not designed to meet their training requirements.

All of our trainings are pre-approved by NAADAC and NBCC for continuing professional education and thus can be taken to meet licensure and certification renewal requirements as well as to stimulate and encourage ongoing professional learning and development.
