Career Steps

  • LSAT - Licensed Substance Abuse Technician

  • LASAC - Licensed Associate Substance Abuse Counselor  

  • LISAC - Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor

What you'll be seeking there in Arizona is licensure as a Licensed Substance Abuse Technician  (LSAT), a Licensed Associate Substance Abuse Counselor (LASAC), or a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor (LISAC), through the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners.  They require that your basic educational hours of drug/alcohol specific training MUST come from a college, university, or proprietary school.  At this time, Arizona DOES NOT allow distance learning to be used for these hours, so unfortunately you won't be able to use a distance learning program to gather your hours.  I'd suggest you visit the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners site at https://azbbhe.us for additional information about credentialing, or use the phone and email details listed above.  They should have a list of local providers that can assist you with your hours.  

I would like to mention that Arizona does allow that all continuing education for relicensure may be obtained by distance learning.  You will need to gather those hours every 2 years, so when you are in need of relicensure I hope you keep our program in mind.  We have a wide variety of addiction education courses available on the Internet (and we offer our coursework in 3 different formats to suit your needs; Internet, USB Flash Drive, and Hard Copy).  

 

Sorry we cannot be of assistance in gathering your basic credentialing, but wish you luck in pursuing your license.  Feel free to contact us by phone or email if you have any follow up questions.   You can reach us during our office hours M-F 9am-4pm CST toll free at 866-431-4240.  If, however, you have specific questions for the board, please contact them using their details above.
