Raina Gagnon

My time at CTS CCC was professional and the staff always went the extra mile to ensure the best possible learning experience. Courses were well laid out and done in a constructive manner conducive to optimal learning. The placement was an excellent hands on learning opportunity. Upon completing my internship I successfully gained employment. I am currently a full time addiction counsellor with Addiction Canada. I have my own case load and with the skills learned, I can apply them directly to my clients. Thank you to all the staff and Julie, the Addictions Intervention Counselling Program Coordinator and Instructor for all their hard work and dedication to education that has allowed me to benefit from a valuable career.
