Certification and Education

International Certification for Counselors

CEA is a member board of the international agency for certification of addiction professionals, the IC&RC (International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium) since 2011. Up to today, there are more than 50,000 professionals around the world with credentials from the IC&RC
Specifically, CEA offers the credential for Alcohol and Drug Counselors (ADC). Addiction professionals that request this credential have to meet the same international standards that professionals from other member countries have to meet. These standards include requirements in the area of experience, education, supervised work, acceptance of the code of ethics, and a passing score in the international standardized examination.

The international credentials from the IC&RC are a means to transmit confidence and safety to the general public who requires services from the certified professionals, manifesting accountability and integrity to those they serve.

If you are a professional in the field of addiction and require more information about how to obtain an international certification, you can contact us at (505) 2265-7097 or at info@ceanicaragua.org

Higher Education for Counselors

CEA organizes annually a Higher Education Program for addiction counselors or other interested individuals through a specialized Post Bachelors Program. This is a program that is realized in collaboration with American College.

The program includes the participation of international experts in the topic of addiction, prevention, and treatment. The participating professors come from prestigious treatment facilities in the Unites States, as well as from diverse universities and federal agencies.

Participating students are eligible for a university level Post Bachelor’s degree emitted by America College. The participants can also become eligible, once they have met other requirements, to take the standardized examination needed to obtain the international certification as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor.

Also, as part of our social responsibility and interest in multiplying current knowledge with an evidence base, CEA and its donors provide support through scholarships to personnel from treatment facilities in our country, from other not for profit organizations, and government agencies that work in the field of addiction.
