What is the difference between a CADC and an LCADC?

A certified alcohol and drug counselor differs from a licensed and certified alcohol and drug counselor in the amount of education that is required. A person may become a certified alcohol and drug counselor with a GED or high school diploma along with passing the required test and taking certain required classes for the certification. In order to obtain an LCADC, you must complete advanced degrees in counseling. People who have either a CADC or an LCADC may offer counseling services to addicts and to people who are recovering alcoholics.
