…Overall I feel that the way the modules were set up made a lot of sense, especially with the way they built off of each other. The pacing was also pretty well done, I never felt overwhelmed and I did pretty well on the tests overall, even with the areas I struggled in.

What Students are Saying…

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

ADELEYE, OMOLARA

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, web-based
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!

— Burton M. Fischler

MPsych, Author of THE GIFT: TRAUMA TO TRIUMPH.

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  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.

More Student Testimonials…

I recently finished OASAS CASAC Section 4 with Educational Enhancement CASAC online. The classes are wonderfully written out and are easy to understand. 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 so I could work at my own speed -between work and school. The information went above and beyond and taught in a way that sticks in your mind. Thank you. I will come back for renewal hours once I’m a CASAC.
Allie Patat

CASAC Student

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 , The PAC Program

As part of my application for CASAC certification, I participated in 15 hours of additional training through Educational Enhancement. I found the courses very well-prepared and delivered and received important information from them very useful in my work in addiction counseling. I appreciate the professionalism and efficiency of setting up the training needed and processing my completion certificate. I will certainly recommend this site and these courses to my peers and the director of my program.
