Course Information

CADA’s School offers several ways to earn Continuing Education Hours. On two Saturdays and two Wednesdays each month, the School holds classes at CADA’s Dan J. Talley Memorial Center. Students can attend either the Saturday or Wednesday courses. Students can earn up to 180 CEHs in the field of addiction through the School. We can also tailor continuing education situations to your individual needs or to those of your agency, either by correspondence or onsite at your facility. These programs are approved for continuing education for social workers by CADA, an approval organization authorized by the Louisiana State Board of Social Work Examiners and by the Addictive Disorder Regulatory Authority (ADRA), AEPE017.
