"I am a CASAC-T after successfully completing my 350 hours of classroom education requirement at Medgar Evers College - a place I highly recommend for the dynamic and interactive teaching sessions to anyone who wants to become a certified alcoholism and substance abuse counselor. I am now doing the required work experience hours at Kingsborough Addiction Treatment Center (ATC)." - Jesus Caicedo.
