Educational Enhancement Is a great CASAC training program. I participated for my initial trainings – passed my CASAC exam in the first go around. I have been using them for my re-credential if for over 10 years. The staff is supportive and informed about the topics. I rate them 5 stars overall and have referred students over the years.
I learned so much, from cultural diversity training to professional development. I work as a 1st responder, and the different things I read about and watched videos of helped me be more patient with colleagues and callers needing assistance.
As an individual who is not currently working in the addiction field (although I do have experience with addiction recovery methods), I cannot say enough about the online CASAC (350 Hours) that is offered by Educational Enhancement. And of course, the excellence and professionalism that all of the staff bring to the experience. From the very first time I reached out to inquire about the program, John Makohen consistently returned my email questions on a timely basis (which, as many of us know, doesn’t always happen these days). Then, John, Maria Mendez, and my mentor Sheila Mashack, went above and beyond to ensure that I was streamlined into the program. They understood my “nervousness” and desire to learn as much as I could about addiction counseling while working full time – and this hybrid model was very thorough and in-depth. What I loved the best about the program, is that it could be done online, on my availability, so that I could continue to work full time at my current job and then, in the evenings, hop into each module at my own pace. They were always there to answer any questions that I had on the modules too. I was truly impressed with the depth of this program and the time and effort that the creators have put into it, to ensure we students become familiar with what it takes to be an addiction counselor. I also enjoy our monthly meetings and getting to hear from the other students that are in my cohort. It gives me a good perspective on what’s going on in the field today and also alleviated any doubts I might have about learning and growing in the field as I continue on. I feel supported – even though I live 2.5 hours away from the NYC area – and I am so grateful that I found this tremendous program online. It’s a gift! If you are an Adult Learner and know that you can be disciplined to take online courses at your own pace, are ready for an in-depth study, but don’t want to feel “alone” – Educational Enhancement’s CASAC (350 Hours) is for you!
I wanted just to take a second and say thank you. Thank you for taking the time to do this, I think you are helping a lot of people understand the role. I’ll be transitioning into my new CASAC role in the next couple of months, thanks to Educational Enhancement CASAC Online.

I’m probably one of the first students trained for the 350 hours of training. I was confident when I went for my exam and passed on my first try. I have been using them for re-credentialing since. Everyone I have referred has been very happy with the Educational Enhancement’s CASAC Training and Renewal program.
