Becoming a Licensed Addiction Counselor
MTAADAC's Mission is to improve the quality and availability of substance-use disorder treatment and counseling for Middle-Tennessee residents.
This page is dedicated to connecting LADAC candidates to the resources they need to become licensed to practice and expand services to our local residents.
Qualified Clinical Supervisors
A smart first step to successful licensure is to engage with a Licensed Qualified Clinical Supervisor as described in the following excerpt from the State Licensing Board Rules:
"4. The applicant must have completed six thousand (6000) hours of experience where the applicant has performed all of the eight (8) domains, as listed in TCA § 68-24-606, while providing alcohol and drug abuse counseling services under the direct supervision of a Qualified Clinical Supervisor who meets the requirements of the rules of the Board."
A QCS can help LADAC candidates structure their roadmap to licensure and share experience on preparing applications and documentation of training hours that will meet the boards requirements and may also offer study tips for the board exam. MTAADAC has created this page to provide interested parties with contact information for QCS's in the area. MTAADAC does not sell space or consider these listings as advertisement for QCS services, but rather offers this list based on submissions by QCS's who want to help expand the local base of licensed helpers in the field of substance-use disorder counseling in Middle Tennessee.
MTAADAC takes no responsibility for the services rendered by these individuals listed below.
