The New York Certification Association (NYCA) is in the process of transitioning to the New York Certification Board (NYCB) which will streamline the certification process in New York State for Certified Peers.


The New York Certification Board (NYCB), an affiliate of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Providers of New York State (ASAP) will become the sole provider of certification in New York for peers certified as recovery peer advocates (CRPA) creating a uniform system and making it simpler for peer candidates to navigate the certification process.
