LICENSING: COUNSELORS & CLINICAL SUPERVISORS

RICB offers three certifications that are prerequisites for licensing: CADC, CAADC & CCS.

In order to obtain OR renew your license, your CADC, CAADC and/or CCS must remain active and in good standing. Licenses are renewed in October of even years. License renewal is done through the Rhode Island Department of Health, Chemical Dependency Licensing Board. RICB does random checks throughout the year to verify those who are licensed have also renewed their certification(s). If a professional is found to be out of compliance, their name will be submitted to the Licensing Board.

Licenses (LCDP & LCDCS) are obtained through the Department of Health, Board of Chemical Dependency Professionals. Questions regarding the licenses should be directed to the Department of Health. For more information on licensing, visit the Department of Health's Chemical Dependency Profession website
