"All content and delivery of the materials and concepts were provided and performed with the highest professionalism. I noticed large improvements in my knowledge of CRAFT, and the handouts were of great benefit, contributing to my increased abilities and competence as a counselor utilizing CRAFT in my work with concerned others who are supporting those living with addictions."

"As a nurse working with opioid use disorder, I interact with families every day. We are considered on the front lines of the opiate epidemic, but it is really families who are the frontline defense. I completed the Self-Guided CRAFT training program and found the training I received to provide great value. In addition to pursuing further learning with We The Village myself, I intend to also pursue purchasing their digital training for three additional members of my nursing team who I work with so that they also gain the skills to support families, and ultimately patient recovery from opioid use disorder."

"As a student that plans on entering the Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counseling space within the next few years, this training was incredibly helpful for me. Since completing this training, I have begun an externship with an outpatient substance use clinic in Manhattan, and have been able to apply the CRAFT skills I learned with my clients there. Not only that, but taking this course definitely boosted my confidence in a therapeutic setting."
