Without knowing anything about the actual code being run, and version of powershell, it's hard to say what you need.

You can run Get-Command to see what Functions and Cmdlets are available on the system. If your code contains any which are not listed, then you likly need to add a an additional module.

Please review the following article. This goes over the pre-requisites for using the Active Directory Module for PowerShell.
Active Directory Administration with Windows PowerShell

If you're Active Directory environment meets the pre-requisites, then you can add the following to your code to load the AD Module.
PS> Import-Module ActiveDirectory
