To unify and serve Addictions Professionals to provide public safety while further enhancing the quality of addiction services for the residents of Saskatchewan.
To protect the public with capable, credible, competent and certified addictions professionals.
The Saskatchewan Association of Chemical Dependency Workers (SACDW) was formed in 1996, assisting its members by providing a vehicle to facilitate closer communication, and to promote a common approach in all areas of chemical dependency counselling, prevention, policy and procedure.
In 2007, the name was changed to the Addiction Professionals Association of Saskatchewan (APASK) to accommodate partnership with the SK/MB chapter of the Canadian Addictions Counsellors Certification Federation (CACCF), and apply for licensure.
What unites us necessitates we work together to find better ways.

The APASK Memorandum of Agreement with CACCF is coming to an end as of the end of Dec. 2015. What this means to you is that APASK will no longer be collecting CACCF dues; that you will now have to renew memberships individually with both organizations. This change is brought about by careful examination of the legal structure of a corporate entity defined as a Federation which CACCF is. As a Federation, CACCF has no legal standing in the provinces putting them in a weak position to regulate ethics and conduct within a potentially provincially legislated forum
