The CAADE uses the CATC exam. They do not provide a practice exam and old exams are not released because questions get recycled. There are only minimal support materials available for free, unfortunately. There are sample items in the exam handbook (, and they also recommend that you use TIP 21 to prepare. These is free. TIP 21:

You can take a class, but it costs. According to the CAADE Spring 2008 newsletter (, the following have prep classes:

Training Institute for Addiction Counselors, Lakewood, CA 562-461-9446
Craig Wetzl, San Francisco City College
Gayle Bayock, West LA College
Cathi Schulte, San Diego City College

They also list prep classes on their website at
