The Addiction Professionals Certification Board’s primary function is the education, certification and testing of addiction and peer specific mental health professionals in the State of New Jersey as well as internationally in partnership with the IC&RC. Learn more about the Certification Board.

All of The Certification Board’s income is generated by fees related to certification of Addiction and Peer Specific Mental Health Professionals. In order to keep fees as reasonable as possible, The Certification Board has limited staffing resources to answer individual questions.
