2011-05-31 !!!!!!!! Graduation 2011 !!!!!!!

On May 27th 2011, The First Graduating Class of the Melitopol College of Addiction Coulnseling has finished their studies. This group of 8 students are now trained to the same level of education required in the States to become Certified Addiction Counselors (CAC). The 500 Hour course of study included a required amout of "Hands On" counseling with alcoholics both here in the Monastery Rehab or other rehabs in association with the Union of Rehabs started in Ukraine in 2010. This group of newly trained profeesionals are better prepared than most of the working counselors here in the Former Soviet Union(FSU). My thanks to them for all their hard work.
