TARP, Inc. provides CASAC-related services (Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor), including a Gambling Treatment Counseling Curriculum, and credentialing services to become a Certified Prevention Professional (CPP), or Credentialed Prevention Specialist (CPS) in the state of New York.

CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION: CASAC, CPP, and CPS training is provided through our Classroom Instruction Program in Midtown Manhattan (New York City) and Glen Cove, Long Island.

ONLINE: We also offer distance learning courses for CASAC credential renewal.

NOTE: As of May 14, 2015, distance learning courses to become a CPP are only for individuals already in the process of completing their CPP course with TARP via distance learning. The only exception requires written approval from the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services Credentialing Unit. TARP continues to offer both CPP and CPS curriculums through classroom instruction.
