NCC AP Announces Test-Exemption Offer for Peer Recovery Support Specialist Credential

The National Certification Commission for Addiction Professionals (NCC AP) is excited to announce an opportunity for qualified individuals to apply for the Nationally Certified Peer Recovery Support Specialist national credential based on their already demonstrated competence, skill, training, and experience without testing through December 31, 2018.

Nationally Certified Peer Recovery Support Specialists (NCPRSS) are individuals who are in recovery from substance use or co-occurring mental health disorders. Their life experiences and recovery allow them to provide recovery support in such way that others can benefit from their experiences. The purpose of the experiential-based NCPRSS national credential is to standardize the knowledge and competency of peer support to individuals with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders.

This one-time test-exemption offer is available from January 15, 2018 through December 31, 2018. To take advantage of this limited time offer, visit the NAADAC website at to learn about eligibility requirements and the application process.
