Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors


Applying for initial licensure from your professional licensing board has become a bit easier.  For the past year, the Department of Health has been working on an online application process that will allow all health care professionals to apply online for an initial license and complete (and update as necessary) a practitioner profile mandatory for certain professions.  The process is user friendly and convenient and even allows you to pay for your initial application utilizing a credit card, debit card or e-check.  You will also be able to upload many of the documents required to complete your initial application!  Please go to the initial application link below to begin the online process.
For mailing documents please sent to: Board of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors; 665 Mainstream Dr.; Nashville TN 37243.
Please read the application instructions below before applying online.  This document gives you all the necessary information regarding what documentation is required for licensure.  It is recommended you print this out for your convenience.  It is further recommended you have all documentation in hand before applying on line.
