Looking for Training?

Most education providers doing in-person training, have switched to interactive online. Please contact the provider of the training you are interested in for details! 

Specific Education: The majority of course content must focus on alcohol, tobacco, and/or other drug use issues. Key words in course titles are: substance abuse, substance use disorder, drug addiction, chemical dependency, alcohol, tobacco, drug use, or co-occurring disorders.

Related Education: General courses in clinical theory and therapeutic methods, or courses that only touch briefly on substance use disorder will count as related.

Approved Providers have been pre-approved to offer training. These are great resources to find multiple approved courses all with the same provider!

The On-site Training Calendar is a list of on site (in person) courses approved by MCBAP.

Distance Learning Courses are not done online, instead coursework is mailed directly to you.
