Criminal Justice

The demonstrated link between alcohol and drug abuse and criminal behavior has resulted in the development of this credentialing process.

Individuals seeking this credential must be equally knowledgeable in the activities of the criminal justice system and substance abuse. Criminal Justice Professionals fill a unique role among health and human service professionals. Such practitioners work in a variety of settings and utilize numerous treatment approaches. They recognize the need to assure quality care to consumers.

To that end, The Mississippi Association of Addiction Professionals (MAAP) Certification Board has designed this voluntary credentialing system for those treatment and criminal justice professionals who provide services primarily to substance abusing offenders. 

Prerequisite: CADC, CADC-I, CADC-II or CAADC.
