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.

FAQ #5: What makes Educational Enhancement the best choice for me?
There are 3 reasons why Educational Enhancement excels past all other in-person and online programs.
1. We are entirely self-paced and self-directed. We never tell you you have to show up for a webinar, classroom discussion, or lecture.
2. Our Certified Advanced CASAC trainers are available to reach via email or text. We promptly reply and will meet with you one-on-one (when needed) to dive deeper into the learning material or motivate you to show up and do the work.
3. Your addiction counseling education and training material exceed that of all other programs. It is thorough, easy to understand, and formatted so that you’ll easily retain the knowledge you gain.
FAQ #6: Do you help me find my internship?
Educational Enhancement will do our best to help you secure your first internship. We cannot guarantee that it will be a paid internship because most programs we send students to begin working in the field want a 90-day non-paid internship. After 90 days the program will assess your quality of work and decide to hire you as an entry-level CASAC-T.
FAQ #7: Can I use my CASAC in another state?
Because New York State OASAS has an intense certification process and requires prospects to pass the IC & RC exam, many states have reciprocity with NY. In most cases, once you obtain your CASAC, you can petition another state governing board to accept your certification. States who also require a passing score on the IC&RC exam typically take the CASAC instead of their State’s certification process. Some States that do not accept the CASAC credential are NJ, CA, CT, WA, and TX.
