LADC and Temporary Permit
Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors (LADCs) observe, describe, evaluate, interpret, and modify human behavior as it relates to the harmful or pathological use or abuse of alcohol or other drugs. Work settings can include private treatment facilities (inpatient and outpatient), detox facilities, half-way houses, correctional facilities, schools, hospitals, and government facilities.
The Minnesota Department of Health began licensing alcohol and drug counselors (LADCs) in 1998. On July 1, 2005, regulation of the license was transferred to the Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy (BBHT).
