Rutgers State University of New Jersey

The ACT Certificate Program’s primary goal is to educate master’s and doctoral-level clinicians who wish to prepare for licensing in their mental health profession and as addictions counselors (LCADC). Dual credentialed clinicians are in great demand in our state and across the country, particularly for leadership positions in organizations that treat both mental health and substance abuse disorders. The ACT Certificate Program provides a 6-course curriculum that covers all 5 domains and the educational hours needed for the CADC/LCADC. The program includes a supervised internship/field placement in DMHAS-approved agencies that addictions professionals need to earn the credential. Participants that already have a clinical master’s degree have the option to EITHER independently obtain employment in a DMHAS-approved agency OR register and pay for a supervised internship/field placement through the ACT program. Students accepted into the program will also receive mentorship and preparation for the licensing exams.
