Project Name: SUD Youth Specialty Credential
Description: CCAPP is the largest statewide consortium of community-based for-profit and nonprofit substance use disorder treatment agencies and addiction-focused professionals, providing services to over 100,000 California residents annually. CCAPP is the only statewide consortium representing all modalities of SUD treatment programs and professionals, which includes adolescents. CCAPP is proud to trailblaze a new specialty credential for existing SUD counselors to be recognized for youth and adolescent competency. Adolescents will hold a platform on the implementation of this education and share their voice, directly influencing CCAPP’s new youth credential. By educating existing counselors, CCAPP will empower them to reach their communities with confidence knowing their credential matches the incredible work they do for their community. The next generation deserves a fighting chance against SUD; this new specialty credential will match our needs to improve our communities indefinitely.
