With our new Postgraduate CASAC training opportunity, behavioral health professionals with an advanced degree can significantly shorten their course time at Outreach Training Institute. This opportunity focuses on sections of the full curriculum that specifically encompass substance use disorder treatment.
This new opportunity is for Master’s level behavioral health clinicians from the following disciplines: social work, mental health counseling, family therapy, creative arts therapy, and psychotherapy/psychoanalysis*. The program takes approximately two and half months to complete and is offered in our Queens and Long Island campuses. For qualified students with an eligible Master’s degree, this opportunity translates into significant time and cost savings.
***IMPORTANT: If you do not hold a Master’s Degree in the above 5 disciplines mentioned, we recommend applying for your CASAC-T through NYS OASAS before you move forward with this application. Applying for your CASAC-T would produce a deficiency report detailing the CASAC sections and hours you need to fulfill the educational requirements towards the CASAC-T. Once you receive this report, include it with your application for consideration. OASAS takes about 10-12 weeks to process.
