What Students are Saying…

This was a very comprehensive course, that seemed to cover every conceivable nuance related to being an Addictions Counselor. I say this as someone who has gone through the entire certification process once before, and as someone who has spent a few years working in the field in various roles.
James Flynn

CRPA, RCP, & CASAC 350 Graduate

This has been an incredible journey and I am so very glad that I have completed this program. I’ve been wanting to do this for so very long, but couldn’t find a way to do it, due to work conflicts. Just so grateful. Thank you so much! 🙂
Margaret Reinold

CASAC 350 Graduate

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.
Malin Falu

Director, Virtual Trainer Educational Enhancement CASAC Online

I have been looking for online CASAC at your pace for more than two years. I came across this program last year, and I am so glad that, as a full-time worker, I can do this course at my own pace and in my comfort zone at an affordable price compared to what colleges will take. Thank you all for making this course available for people like me. Looking forward to achieving excellent knowledge from this program. Thanks

CASAC Student

My stepsons’ struggles with drugs and alcohol ended badly. So, I decided to become a
CASAC addiction counselor to make a difference. I was fortunate to discover Educational
Enhancement’s online addiction counseling training. Their mission is to “ENCOURAGE.
EDUCATE. EMPOWER.” And they exceeded their promise with an approved distance learning
education and training program that embraces learning principles. It made learning fun and
efficient.  Their training included modules containing
workbooks, PDFs, links to resources, and videos. And their test questions helped me feel
prepared to pass the CASAC exam. Thanks to their support, I completed my
coursework ahead of schedule.
I’ve spent a substantial portion of my career in the knowledge business, teaching college and
grad students, accountants, and attorneys. Additionally, as a director of training and
development for my Behavioral Consulting firm, I’ve trained many employees. So, I’m
speaking from experience when I say that Maria Mendez, John Makohen, and their Educational
Enhancement team is doing a great job changing the world — one addiction counselor at a
time. BRAVO!

What can I say about Educational Enhancement?  They helped me to become a CASAC. The training programs were informative, easy for me to understand and the trainers were excellent.  I still call them when I have a question about training programs, re-credential requirements, and what’s new in the field.  I highly recommend Educational Enhancement to anyone seeking CASAC training.

Educational Enhancement was a great choice for my CASAC distance learning education and training!  Overall, the training setup made a lot of sense to me. It flowed smoothly, especially with all the information-packed inside.  I never felt overwhelmed. I did well on the tests, even in the areas I thought I would struggle in.

Zachary Stamp

Student CASAC and LMHC

I recently finished OASAS CASAC Section 4 with Educational Enhancement CASAC online. The distance learning classes are wonderfully written and easy to understand, and you can feel the passion for helping others succeed put into this work. When I asked questions about the information, Johnny was quick to reply and help me out. The trainings were set up to work at my speed -between work and school. The information went above and beyond and was taught in a way that sticks in your mind. Thank you.
I will come back for renewal hours once I’m a CASAC.
