Southwest Certification Board (SCB)
The Southwest Certification Board (SCB), an affiliate of Native American Connections, is an official International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) Certification Board for the purpose of credentialing qualified alcohol and drug counselors, serving both urban and tribal Native American populations.
The IC&RC defines the jurisdiction of SCB as: Counselors working in Indian Health Service (IHS) funded agencies, Tribal and Native American operated agencies, and agencies that primarily serve American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) in the Southwestern United States.
The SCB is not accepting new applications. For information on Certification visit: www.internationalcredentialing.com.
The State of Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners (BBHE) requires counselors to be LICENSED to practice in the area of Substance Abuse Counseling. Consequently, the State of Arizona does NOT recognize Southwest Certification or IC&RC Certification credentials.
