The Arkansas Substance Abuse Certification Board (ASACB) was incorporated as a private non-profit board in September 1986 to adopt standards for qualifying, evaluating, and certifying individuals as Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (AODA) Counselors. In early 1992, the ASACB affiliated with the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC), an organization with standardized minimum competency requirements for international testing and certification. The ASACB monitors counselors' continuing education and professional development to ensure that Arkansas clients receive quality care from component addiction professionals. All applications submitted to the Board will be individually reviewed. Acceptance or denial of an application is at the sole discretion of the Board.
