Students enrolled in the University of Maine at Farmington Rehabilitation and Human Services Program can now prepare for a career as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor with access to the University of Maine at Augusta’s Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Technician Certificate.

This collaborative effort between UMF’s Rehabilitation and Human Services Program and the University of Maine at Augusta’s (UMA’s) Mental Health and Human Services Program allows you to prepare for the Certified Drug and Alcohol Certification (CADC) exam more easily.

UMF students can complete up to 15 credits (5 classes) at UMF to be used towards the required 30 Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Technician credits at UMA. The other 15 credits (5 classes) must be taken at UMA to make you eligible to receive the UMA Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Technician Certificate.

Upon completion of UMA’s Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Technician requirements, you’ll be eligible to apply for the UMA Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Technician Certificate. Once you receive your certificate you can then apply for the Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC) license in Maine.
