The California Association for Alcohol/Drug Educators was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 1984 under the direction of founder Dr. Dick Wilson. CAADE initially began with the goal of setting and upholding accreditation standards for Alcohol/Drug Studies Programs in California and continues to do so. The institution has a vision to be a leader in state and national collaborative efforts that improve the overall health and welfare of those afflicted with substance use disorders.
CAADE promotes and supports quality higher education in addiction studies by:
- providing continuing education and professional development
- leading the state and national levels in the development and implementation of certification and licensure standards for addiction service professionals
- developing and implementing accreditation standards for higher education in addiction studies
- providing public policy education and advocacy among consumers and other stakeholders.
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 – was adopted in 2001 and 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.
