As a pastor and a counselor for twenty years, I am more than grateful to have these tools from NET Institute because of the growing need. There are many counseling materials I can use for marriages, anger and other character issues but very few that truly deal with addictions. Over the years I have counseled many people who have suffered with substance addictions and I have often struggled due to the lack of materials and training in this area. I look forward to taking and completing this program.
