Founded in 1972, as the National Association of Alcoholism Counselors and Trainers (NAACT), the organization's primary objective was to develop a field of professional counselors with professional qualifications and backgrounds. The organization evolved and became the National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) in 1982, uniting professionals who worked for positive outcomes in alcohol and drug services. NAADAC's new name - NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals - reflects the increasing variety of addiction services professionals: counselors, administrators, social workers and others, who are active in counseling, prevention, intervention, treatment, education and research.
NAADAC's members provide services in a variety of settings: private and public treatment centers, hospitals, private practice and community-based behavioral health agencies.
Science has shown that addiction is a brain disease that responds well to treatment. Research is providing a better understanding of how drugs, alcohol, tobacco and other chemical substances affect the brain. NAADAC supports continued research and is a powerful advocate for policies improving the understanding of - and financial support for - prevention and treatment of addiction.
NAADAC promotes excellence in care by advocating for the highest quality and most up-to-date, science-based services for clients, families and communities. NAADAC does this by providing education, clinical training and certification. Among the organization's national certification programs are the National Certified Addiction Counselor, Tobacco Addiction Credential and the Masters Addiction Counselor designations. NAADAC has credentialed more than 15,000 counselors, playing an important role in sustaining quality health services and protecting the well being of the public.
"NAADAC's Mission is to lead, unify, and empower addiction focused professionals to achieve excellence through education, advocacy, knowledge, standards of practice, ethics, professional development and research." - NAADAC Mission Statement adopted 1998
