The Addiction Counsellors of Ireland is a long established professional association that accredits counsellors working in the specific field of addiction.
The Addiction Counsellors of Ireland sees a key part of its role as creating awareness through dialogue in public discourse about the increasing prevalence and the reality of the problems with addiction in Ireland. Addiction affects nearly all families nationwide and there is a pressing need to address this health concern by ensuring that there is a clear understanding of its effects.
There is unfortunately a stigma associated with addiction and seeking help through counselling. Although it is common and socially acceptable to say that you are seeking professional medical help from your doctor for various ailments or illnesses, the same acceptance does not extend to those seeking counselling support. One of the Addiction Counsellors of Ireland key objectives is to seek to reduce these stigmas so people don’t feel the need to suffer alone and in silence.
As an accredited member of the Addiction Counsellors of Ireland, you are or can become certified by a professional association which acknowledges that you are a counsellor who is specifically trained and experienced in the field of addiction and accredited to Addiction Counsellors of Ireland standards. Accredited members are entitled to use Member Addiction Counsellors of Ireland (MACI) after their name.

"As Clincal Director of the Rutland Centre, I had the opportunity to welcome Jenny O'Byrne into our Internship Programme in Addiction Counselling, which was a full time internship designed to enhance the skills of a professional counsellor who wanted to specialize in the area of addiction. Jenny proved herself quite able to handle the demands of this 12 month commitment. She is smart, strong, knowledgable and well grounded in the theory and practice of effective addiction counselling, including the all important work with family members. I believe she would be particularly effective in working with young people damaged either by their own substance misuse or by the addiction of another."
