The California Counselor Certification Organizations (CalCCO, Pronounced Cal-ko) is a collaborative coalition consisting of the three California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) approved certification organizations. Per State Regulations, these three agencies are accredited by the National Commission for Certification Agencies – Institute for Credentialing Excellence (NCCA/ICE). CalCCO meets regularly to discuss collaborative efforts in the evolution of California’s SUD Certification. The group also meets with DHCS officials regarding these efforts.
The three DHCS approved agencies are:
- California Association of Alcohol/Drug Educators (CAADE)
- California Association of DUI Treatment Programs (CADTP)
- California Consortium of Addiction Programs & Prefessionals (CCAPP)
