Tuesday, 24 July 2012 02:02

Training Institute (OTI) is offering scholarships to eligible applicants for its Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC) program, designed for those committed to working in the substance abuse and behavioral health fields. All candidates for the CASAC diploma program must have at least a high school diploma or a GED and meet other admissions criteria. Interested candidates may contact the organization via www.opiny.org.

Scholarships available include the following, with classes held at OTI's three locations - Brentwood, Long Island; Richmond Hill, Queens, and Greenpoint, Brooklyn:

  • Full-tuition scholarships ($4,450) have been made available to healthcare workers through the New York State Department of Health Workforce Retraining grant (for applicants residing in NYC and Long Island). Those eligible are health care workers who are either: 1) currently employed in a facility licensed by OASAS (Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services, the Deparment of Mental Health, or any other hospital or healthcare facility, 2) have been laid off from such a facility, or 3) are at risk of being laid off from any of the previously mentioned work settings. They cannot be credentialed Qualified Health Professionals (QHP).
  • Full ($4,450) and partial ($2,225) tuition merit- and low income- based scholarships are also available, particularly for individuals making less than $28,000 a year (full scholarships are available to those in NYC; partial scholarships are available to those in both NYC and Long Island).

OTI has more than 25 years of providing professional training to treatment programs, hospitals, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations. Its major focus is on the provision of the CASAC diploma program. OTI began providing the 350-hour CASAC diploma program in 1995 and currently trains over 300 students annually, making it the largest approved provider of CASAC training in New York State. The program provides students with all of the course work required to sit for the New York State Alcoholism and Substance Abuse credentialing exam.

Outreach is a nonprofit organization committed to addressing the issues stemming from drug and alcohol abuse by providing the highest quality of life-changing drug and alcohol treatment and training services.
