LCDC Exam Review 2015

The Updated Exam for Substance Abuse Counselors – What Has Changed?

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:

  • Performance Domain 1: Screening, Assessment, and Engagement
  • Performance Domain 2: Treatment Planning, Collaboration, and Referral
  • Performance Domain 3: Counseling
  • Performance Domain 4: Professional and Ethical Responsibilities

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.
