Thank you so much for the opportunity to be able to complete these courses on my time – some days I am able to dedicate 8-10 hours and some days I cannot log on at all. Not having to present to a “scheduled class” on a particular day at a set time makes it so much more convenient to meet the necessary requirements and I cannot thank you enough for creating this program and these courses

Maybe you’re just sick and tired of watching the young people in your community ruin their lives with drugs and alcohol.

If you’re passionate about choosing a career in addiction recovery, it is time to take action.

3 Ways to Purchase your 350-hour CASAC Education and Training Program

 

1.  One Easy Payment

You can purchase the complete training for (one) easy $4000.00 through this link to our checkout page. All of our addiction courses are self-directed, online studies.  You can access your training dashboard immediately following your purchase—all course material (videos, workbooks, resources, and assessments) from your account dashboard. You will receive your certificate of purchase within 24-hours of completing the training. 

2.  3 Monthly Payments

When you choose this second option, for $4200.00 you will make 3 equal payments of $1400.00.

The 3 Tier Payment Plan set up:

First Payment of $1400.00 due to start training (month 1)- Access to CASAC Section 1

Second Payment of $1400.00,  due 30 days after the initial purchase (Month 2) – Opens up CASAC Section 2

Third Payment of $1400.00due 60 days after the initial investment (month 3) – Opens CASAC Section 3 and Section 4.

As with all of our training courses, your educational material is available in your online course dashboard immediately following your initial purchase.

You can study wherever you want whenever you have free time. Just sign in and get to work.

Workbooks and many resources are available for download, so you don’t always need an internet connection to study.

3. Purchase Individual Courses

When you choose to purchase courses individually, you don’t have a significant initial investment. However, data analysis shows us that students who pursue their career one course at a time tend to take considerably longer to finish the training, if at all. 

This is because it’s easy to finish training and then take a break before buying the next training. Breaks get longer, motivation falters, and the road looks a helluva lot longer.

We strongly suggest using this option only if you have previously begun your counseling addiction training elsewhere and then withdrew. Our counseling courses function more for renewing your addiction counseling credential.

However, if you want to pursue this option or maybe test the waters to see if online substance use counselor education and training is for you, we suggest you start here.
