What to Expect and How to Prepare for the Certification Exam for Alcohol and Drug Counselor
Hello everyone! This is a short and quick post to introduce the new Alcohol and Drug Counselor certification exam by the IC&RC, which will be administered by all IC&RC member boards in late 2014, early 2015. I will be publishing more detailed information about the test, but for now I will mention what the new examination will cover.
The main change is in the name of the content. The very well known 8 Practice Domains were grouped into 4 Performance Domains. Notice the change in the word practice, into performance. Is the information completely different, then? The answer is, no. The information is the same; in fact, the new exam will continue to measure competency in the same areas. The 4 Performance Domains, are:
Engagement = Client, Family, and Community Education
Collaboration = Service Coordination
So, if you’re planning on taking the new LCDC exam, also known as the Alcohol and Drug Counselor exam, by the International Credentialing and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC), stay tuned because I will update my blog and my study guide, and I will be publishing more information related to this new exam.

Candidate Preparing for IC&RC’s ADC examination should note that starting in March of 2016, the ADC examination will have questions with either three (3) or four (4) choices. Read more…
The questions on the ACD/LCDC (Substance Abuse Counselor exam) are multiple choice, just as before, but with either three (3) or four (4) choices. The structure of the questions is the same in that there is only one correct answer (for questions with only one correct answer and two or three false answers), or best answer (for questions with more than one correct answer, but only one is the best answer that includes all the other correct answers).
The Umbrella method is still effective for questions with one best answer. The Umbrella method is the one in which you choose the answer that includes the other correct answers, therefore you end up choosing the best answer. For this kind of questions is necessary that you are very familiar with the topic so that you can identify all the potential correct answers and the main answer that includes them.
