What Others Are Saying

“Your selection of courses and the material therein are right on the mark. For whatever time I’m fortunate enough to continue counseling, yours will be the provider of choice; and I will spread the word to all of my friends in the biz.

I am 82 years old; have been in recovery 32 years. I served on the Maryland Addictions Counselor Certification Board for 6 years and the Maryland State Board of Nursing Rehab Committee for 8 years. As you can imagine, I’ve endured many hours of CEU classes from which I took little which would benefit my patients.”

“I began my journey of substance abuse education and certification in 2006. I work for a substance abuse treatment facility who provides treatment all over the big island, my specialty is adolescents (specifically in middle and high school). I began my classes with Elizabeth in February of 06 and now here I am 4 years later, a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor.

Being able to attend these classes on the weekends fit in perfectly for me with my busy work schedule and 3 children to raise. Elizabeth was very informative, always giving me what I needed to meet this ultimate goal of being certified, making sure I was taking notes and listening to every word she spoke. The small classroom setting was very therapeutic and we students always seemed to get along, all working towards the same goal. I would recommend this course to all whom are seeking their certification, you wont get it like this anywhere else !”

“I am am a 2007 graduate.  The 270 hour course has given me a new confidence and prepared me for the challenge to accept a position as a primary counselor for last three years serving adolescents and adults in North Hawaii in an intensive outpatient facility.

I feel privileged to share how this course has helped me gain the credibility I needed for a most rewarding position in the industry.  Today,  I continue to specialize my skills in the field as a counselor on school campus locations in Waimea and Honokaa.

Thank you PAHA for providing me with the skills I needed to help me make a difference in the lives of those who choose recovery.”
