Bringing All The Pieces Together

Mississippi Addiction Counselor Training ("MACT")


The Mississippi Addiction Counselor Training (MACT) Program exists to help behavioral health and other professionals improve their skills to better serve persons addicted to harmful chemicals. MACT courses are open to all individuals interested in learning more about chemical dependency. Many students have an interest in becoming a professional addiction counselor in a variety of social or work settings. Allied health professionals such as social workers, nurses, marriage and family therapists and other helping professionals often benefit substantially from developing specialized addiction skills to better assist the individuals with whom they work. A commitment to become a full-time counselor is not necessary for course enrollment. However, a strong desire to study the chemical dependency field is essential. A high school or college degree is not required, but students should have basic writing, reading and verbal skills to benefit fully from the training.

The program is also designed for both experienced counselors looking to upgrade their skills, intern counselors working toward a credential, and individuals who are seeking employment in the addiction counseling profession. All training is provided in a safe learning environment conducive to personal and professional training and growth. All course work is structured in a manner to encourage both personal growth and professional development. All MACT instructors must meet certain criteria and are chosen based upon their proven abilities to facilitate adult learning and skill development.

The Addiction Counselor Training (ACT) Model for training addiction counselors was developed in Texas in 1974 and has been implemented throughout Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Hawaii, and California. Its founder, Vic Shaw, established the ACT here in Mississippi over ten years ago. The ACT has a proven track record of providing over three decades of quality counselor education across the nation. Several thousand individuals have benefited from these courses to improve and upgrade their skills. As we work to improve the credentialing standards here in Mississippi, it is imperative that we upgrade our skills as addiction counselors. We are committed to providing this training at a reasonable cost and to making the training accessible for interested individuals.

Thank you for your interest in the Mississippi Addiction Counselor Training (MACT) Program and for your desire to improve your abilities and skills to help facilitate your work with addiction sufferers. We hope that you will join us for this professional training program. For information about the courses, class schedule or to register, please download our brochure located on our website.
