Testimonials from Students

The Drug & Alcohol Certificate Program at City College of San Francisco has been a godsend. Not only does it fulfill a much-needed niche in our community, that of low cost intensive training in this field, but it also brings together an incredibly diverse population of compassionate and caring practitioners, educators, faculty and students. I have learned so much from this program, both personally and professionally, that I would strongly recommend it to anyone interested in entering this field.

I have been working in the field for many years but needed to become certified.  I found the classes in Drug & Alcohol Studies to be very informative, up-to-date, and refreshing!  The instructors are knowledgeable and personable.  I highly recommend this program to people like me who are already working in the field but need their certification.  You will enjoy the classes, and you'll learn things that will help you with your current work!
