KAAP: Addiction Counselor Licensure (LAC/LCAC)

On March 26, 2010, Governor Mark Parkinson signed the Addiction Counselor Licensure Act. The passage of this bill moves the profession forward, placing addiction professionals on equal footing with the other behavioral sciences. During the 2011 legislative session, KAAP advocated for a trailer bill, SB 100. We are pleased to report that this bill passed both the Senate and House in May 2011.
Below you will find several helpful documents related to licensure which begins on July 1, 2011. Counselors will be licensed with the Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board. You can visit their website at www.ksbsrb.org.   The draft application will be available to view in early June 2011. Applications will NOT be accepted until July 1, 2011.
