The Society of Addiction Psychology (SoAP) welcomes its Student and Early Career Psychologist (ECPs) members! We present the following resources as information you may find useful. Be sure to check back at this page, at we will be making regular updates with more content specific to the needs of our students and ECPs.
Pre-Doctoral Internships with Addiction Training
SoAP developed a list of APA-Accredited pre-doctoral internships and a list of non-APA Accredited pre-doctoral internships that include addiction training. The tables include information about what kinds of addictions training, supervision and research are offered at each site. We hope this is helpful to students applying to internships in the near future.
For individuals planning to be clinicians, credentialing scholarships are available to cover application fees. Estimates suggest these fees can be $400 or more, with additional fees to them cover maintenance of the credentials. The National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology, in conjunction with American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS), is pleased to announce an award for doctoral students in psychology interested in becoming credentialed by the National Register through its student program, the National Psychologist Trainee Register (NPTR).

For individuals planning to be clinical researchers, there are loan repayment programs available through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) available to psychologists.
