Online CASAC Home Study is hereForget Classes and Webinars.


In the past, when you wanted to pursue a career as an addiction professional, you had to hustle from work to a stuffy old classroom. Studying in situations like these creates stress. 

If you’re anything like me, you might never feel comfortable studying in an environment of your peers, getting distracted by others not there to learn, or listening to certain students who go off on tangents that dominate class discussions and worse of all getting home well after 11:00 PM on a work night.

CASACs already working in the field remember:

  • hustling out of work to get to the training facility,
  • choking down fast during the first 30 minutes of class, food,
  • worrying about their children at home,
  • and the looming threat of getting home at 10:00 PM, so you could get in bed before you had to wake up and do it all again. 

Those who work and our just starting 350 Hours of CASAC education and training would have those same worries listed above.

And for those of you not working you can finish your training in 3 months, However you will be:

jammed in a room for 8 hours a day with 25 -30 classmates who might care about CASAC education and training. learning. 

Contending with the threat of COVID-19 made the traditional classroom setting dangerous.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced us all indoors. Technology became our answer. People started working and studying from home.

The addiction recovery field found a workaround with telehealth and training programs switched over to webinars.

In regards to continuing education OASAS education and training providers were forced to start using webinars to continue classes.

However, the webinars were still packed with 25-30 students, scheduled at certain times, and —most often— caused you to skip meals snd lose rest and quality family time. Not to mention the impossibility of staying focused for 8 hours a day in a Zoom Meeting. (Ugh!)

Attending webinars that span an entire day, harbor distraction, and disengagement. 

How many of you have signed into a webinar and then after 5 minutes started

  • scrolling the web?
  • binge-watch Game of Thrones?
  • or working on other important tasks you’d been putting off?

What Students are Saying…

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

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

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!

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.

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.
