Addiction Counseling Certification Program

Welcome to Tahoe Turning Point’s School for Addiction Counseling


Our Mission is to provide our community with the best possible addiction counseling educational program possible through the utilization of onsite student-experience and through the use of professionally trained and licensed alcohol and drug counselor-instructors.

Our Goal is to increase the number of licensed and certified addiction counselors in our community and our Nation through the utilization of a comprehensive, 18-month CCAPP certified program.

Our Hope is to be an effective tool in our community’s and our Nation’s attempt at reducing and even one day eliminating the aversive effects of drug and alcohol abuse and dependence . . .

The School for Addiction Counseling accommodates those individuals seeking a terminal program at the certificate level leading to certification and/or licensure in California.  It also accommodates professionals who wish to re-specialize in addiction.

Students achieve competency in gradual stages, integrating 270 hours of class time with 90 hours of practicum. Students are prepared for entry-level counseling positions based on a range of knowledge and skills.  At the end of the program, students will have the knowledge and skills to become an accredited Addiction Counselor with CCAPP.
