EECO Screening, Assessment, and Evaluation for Substance Abuse Counselors Course

Drug Counselor training certificate course requires students to learn the appropriate process of screening clients for substance use disorders.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to be able to complete these courses on my own time – some. days, I am able to dedicate 8-10 hours, and some 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.  I look forward to receiving these two-course certificates and will be enrolling.

I am so thankful for this self-paced, self-study. So many people learn differently – and all the distractions of a classroom setting, even virtual classes on zoom can be distracting.

-Jacqueline Nieves-DeLaPaz

CASAC 350 Student

The entire training was useful but I specifically liked the fact that you included both audio and visual components to refer to. I also liked that you shared a number of resources as well and that they will be available going forward as I progress in my hands-on training and career. Of course, the fact that the training was largely self-paced was a huge benefit.
