Pennsylvania Certification Board CAAC and CADC Certification Reimbursement Application
DBHIDS and BHTEN are committed to helping our Philadelphia behavioral health provider network continue to prepare for the transition from the PCPC to the ASAM framework. As the ASAM framework is being implemented across all levels of care, we plan to support addiction’s services staff obtain accreditation such as the Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC) and Certified Associate Addictions Counselor (CAAC). In an effort to bolster these certifications in our Philadelphia system, we will be reimbursing a limited number of staff who successfully pass the certification examination for either the CADC or the CAAC. Those that wish to be reimbursed must be employed by one of our Philadelphia providers and have completed the DBHIDS CADC and CAAC Reimbursement application process. The reimbursement opportunity will be available over the next 3 years.
