National Endorsed Co-Occurring Disorders Professional

The NECODP is designed to address the need for competencies for professionals treating persons with co-occurring substance use and mental disorders (CODs).

Attainment of Endorsement

The portfolios of candidates who successfully complete the eligibility review and the written examination will be presented to the NCC AP for final approval of award of the NECODP. Candidates will be notified of examination results approximately four weeks after the close of the testing window. Portfolios of passing candidates will be presented to the NCC AP for final review and approval which may consume an additional six weeks. Upon notification of award, the candidate is encouraged to use the appropriate designation (NECODP) after their name in all professional endeavors. Endorsement validation is available at all times through the NCC AP administrative offices.

Please Note: Endorsement holders must maintain current state credential/licensure.  If state credential or license lapses, promotion of a candidate's NECODP is unethical.
