Public Protection

IC&RC promotes public protection by setting standards and developing exams for credentialling prevention, substance use treatment, and recovery professionals. Organised in 1981, it has a worldwide network of over 50,000 professionals.

Evidence Based-Practices

Quality and integrity are the foundation of IC&RC’s work. IC&RC’s products use the latest research on evidence-based practices, and they are updated every five years and subjected to an extensive process of peer review.

Member Boards

IC&RC standards and exams are used exclusively by IC&RC Boards. Each Board is independently run and operated with its own jurisdictionally specific processes. If you want to take an exam or earn a credential in the UK/ Europe, you are on the right website!

IC&RC will be the globally recognised resource for prevention, substance use treatment, and recovery credentialing.
