Program:

Substance abuse counselors counsel and advise individuals with alcohol, tobacco, drug, or other problems. For those seeking work as a substance abuse counselor in Utah, a professional licensure issued by the Utah Department of Commerce’s Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL) is mandatory.

 Requirements include:

  • A bachelor’s degree. Applicants must submit an official transcript or certificate from an accredited institution.
  • Supervised experience. Applicants with a bachelor’s degree in substance abuse or a behavioral science must submit documentation that shows they have completed a minimum of 2,000 hours of supervised clinical experience. Applicants must submit a “Verification of Supervised Experience” form completed by their supervisors along with their application for license.
  • Applicants must also provide proof that they have successfully passed the International Certification Examination for Alcohol and Drug Counselors by submitting a copy of the score report showing a passing score on the written National Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) National Certification Exam Level I, II, or MAC.

Keep in mind that unlike many other states, Utah’s license renewal schedule is not based on the initial date a license was issued. Under Utah’s renewal system, all substance abuse counselor licenses expire as a group on the same day every two years.
For more information, contact the DOPL at 160 East 300 South, Salt Lake City, Utah 84111
