Reciprocity into Rhode Island

Addiction professionals certified by an IC&RC member board who relocate to Rhode may transfer their credential to RICB using the reciprocity process. No additional requirements will have to be met by the certified professional using this process to transfer their credential to Rhode Island. To begin the reciprocity process, certified addiction professionals must contact their current credentialing board and request a reciprocity application. Upon completion of the reciprocity application by both the certified addiction professional and the current credentialing board and upon receipt of this information by RICB, RICB will then issue the certified addiction professional the equivalent credential offered by RICB.

 

Reciprocity out of Rhode Island

Addiction professionals certified by RICB who relocate to another state, country, or nation may transfer their credential to the new jurisdiction using the reciprocity process only if the new jurisdiction is an IC&RC member board. Reciprocity to a non-IC&RC member board is not permitted. Additional requirements may be imposed upon the certified addiction professional depending on the laws and regulations governing the practice of addiction related services in the new jurisdiction. Therefore, certified addiction professionals are strongly encouraged to contact the IC&RC member board in the new jurisdiction to determine if any additional requirements must be met. To begin the reciprocity process, certified addiction professionals must contact RICB via email at info@ricerboard.org and request a reciprocity application. Upon completion of the reciprocity application by both the certified addiction professional and RICB and upon receipt of this information by the certification board in the new jurisdiction, that board will then issue the certified addiction professional the equivalent credential offered unless laws or regulations governing the practice of addiction related services in the new jurisdiction must first be met.
