    I have been enrolled in this course since January and I have learned so much about mental health and addiction counseling. The professors go above and beyond with educating their students on addictionolgy and mental health. I feel prepared and confident to begin my career in the treatment field working with clients who have a wide range of issues. The class format always changes, which I feel is helpful in order to keep everyone engaged at all times. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to expand their knowledge about these subjects.

  • Steven Cupo (Thursday, September 14 17 12:26 pm EDT)

    I have been taking this class now for about 6 months and I could not imagine it going any better. My professor Julian is an amazingly knowledgeable man. I have learned so much and am already applying certain aspects of this class in my life. I can not wait to see what the future holds for me after learning what I have thus far.

  • Sarah Bregman (Saturday, September 02 17 02:28 pm EDT)

    This class was nothing short of amazing. Professor Rodriguez was extremely motivating, captivating, knowledgeable, inspirational, and passionate. I learned so much from this class and I would highly recommend taking it.

  • William Thorndike (Sunday, February 26 17 08:28 pm EST)

    Taking the full course this past year has been the best educational experience of my life.
    The course outline is industry specific, thorough and challenging. The instructors and staff are professional, helpful and extremely knowledgeable in all phases of addiction and treatment .
    This course will allow me to follow my dreams and passion to help other recovering addicts and alcoholics receive the necessary help they need so they may live happy healthy lives free from addiction
    Without the help of a very special instructor I may have never realized this dream
    I'm getting ready to potentially sit for my CAP as early as April .
    If u have any desire to further your career in the tx industry and gain respect among your peers then this course is a MUST

    Professor was motivating, passionate and an expert in his field. Students were engaged and learned with powerful interactive dialogues. One tip, complete your reading and writing assignments, you will be much more informed.

  • Mary Nelms (Tuesday, June 28 16 03:02 pm EDT)

    I have taken my CAP training here. The education has been invaluable. Dr. Julian Rodriquez not only teaches you the required clinical information but the practical application as well. He taught with
    such passion and knowledge that when you have completed you are absolutely equipped and ready to be a Therapist. I would highly recommend this Academy.

  • Gina Marie taylor (Tuesday, June 28 16 11:23 am EDT)

    After being out of school for 30+ years they encouraged me past the fear of starting again!! The classes are engaging and in depth with individual attention to detail. I'm a needy student and they
    take the time to help in all ways possible. I always leave wanting more! Thanks so much for the education but most for giving me the faith to jump in! Gina Marie

  • Diane Rogers (Tuesday, June 28 16 09:22 am EDT)

    This is the most engaging and interactive course I have ever participated in. Professor Rodriguez not only supplies us with additional course materials but teaches the class in a DI
    (Differential Instruction) allowing all students of all levels to process all the information in different styles of learning. I would not hesitate to recommend this course, especially with such a
    dynamic Professor!

  • Laura Stickel (Tuesday, June 28 16 07:11 am EDT)

    I am currently taking the CAC class and work in the addictions field. I am using what I learn from this class in my everyday work experience. The way the CAC class is presented is very unique. The
    Professor does not talk over your head (very funny), the class interacts with each other and the class is cost effective. I just love this class......

  • Mary Regina Arnold (Monday, June 27 16 10:20 pm EDT)

    I'm so grateful for this opportunity. Dr. Julian Rodriguez is the best professor I've ever had. I am learning so much. Physically attending school is what I needed. You can't put a price on what
    we've learned and the passion that goes with it. I am one satisfied customer!

    I have been impressed with the detailed lectures and hands on approach of education that have surpassed my experiences at other institutions.

  • C. Thomas Hosea (Friday, November 08 13 01:48 pm EST)

    As a newcomer to the field of addiction studies, I found that the teaching and support staff of IFAS has been most beneficial to me. The class hours and locations were convenient to my daily work
    schedule. The instructors have a wealth of knowledge in the field and a true passion for their students success.
