What is NASAC?

The National Addiction Studies Accreditation Commission (NASAC) is the only Accrediting body that represents addiction-focused Educators and Practitioners. It is also the only disciple specific accrediting body that accredits all levels of academic education, that have Addiction Studies Majors, Minors or Concentrations, including: Associate Degree, Bachelors Degree, Masters Level Certificate, Masters Degree, Post-Graduate Certificate, and Doctoral Degree.

The Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) have encouraged the two primary groups representing academic educators and counselors to create a single higher education addiction studies accreditation body to assess academic programs in addiction studies at regionally accredited institutions of higher education. Workshop and continuing education programs will not be included in this accreditation process.
