Become a certified substance use disorder counselor (CADC I) through Serenity Lane’s 1-year counselor-in-training program. Currently accepting applicants.
Serenity Lane’s Substance Use Disorder Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program has been training substance use disorder counselors for over thirty years. This program began when the first Serenity Lane board realized that a pool of well-trained counselors would be necessary to meet the increased demands of substance use disorder.
Serenity Lane offers free training for one full year and we offer a low interest loan of up to $10,000 to offset living expenses while you attend the program. You will receive top quality instruction and experience that you will use for career enhancement over a lifetime.
To qualify for the counselor-in-training program you must have at least a high school diploma or equivalent. If you are in recovery, you must have two years in recovery attested to by a letter from your sponsor.
