Land Acknowledgement

The Arizona Association of Addiction Professionals respectfully acknowledges that our association is located on the ancestral and territorial lands of indigenous peoples that include the tribes of Arizona. This acknowledgment reminds us of our connection to the land and our ongoing efforts to honor, recognize, and learn from the stewards of this land.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement (a work in progress and living declaration):

Arizona Association of Addiction Professionals (AAAP) champions compassionate principles and ethical values of racial equality and social justice. We affirm behavioral health parity for accessible care of addiction prevention, intervention, and treatment. We are committed to equitable treatment, and value life experiences to ensure all voices are heard, inclusive of our diverse heritages and cultural communities.

Membership in both NAADAC and your state affiliate ensures that you are represented at both the national and state level.

NAADAC is committed to advocating for the best interests of its members, clients, communities and the profession overall. Without the dedicated advocates who stand up for the profession, our members will not have a voice.

The purpose of credentialing is to standardize the quality of addiction prevention, intervention, treatment and continuing care services.
