Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counselors
Welcome to OPR
The 2016 enactment of H.562 moved the registration/certification and licensure of Apprentice Addiction Professionals, Certified Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors, and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors to the Office of Professional Regulation (OPR). As of September 1, 2016, all matters regarding obtaining certification or licensure, discipline, certification or license renewal are handled solely by OPR. Contact OPR with any questions at the contact names and numbers provided below.
If you previously held a license with ADAP or CERTIFICATION from the Vermont Certification Board
Your current license or certification was valid through the regular expiration date of 1/31/2017. If you have not yet renewed, you must complete an application. It is considered unprofessional conduct to practice without a license. It is solely your responsibility to renew on time. Please consult the Forms and Applications webpage for more information.
If you need assistance, we are happy to help! Please contact Terry at firstname.lastname@example.org or (802) 828-2191.
If you have a PENDING APPLICATION with ADAP or the Vermont Certification Board
If your application was in pending status on September 1, 2016, a form is required to maintain your active application with our office. OPR will honor the qualifications for licensure under the rules which were in effect at the time of your application with ADAP or the Vermont Certification Board. If you have not yet submitted the pending application form that was mailed on 9/22/16, please contact our office.
