Teresa Orrick is a Department of Human Services Alcohol & Substance Abuse Concentration student.

“UIS offers a substance abuse certificate and I could do most of the program online, which allowed me to take classes and still be able to work full time. I love the blended classes. Dr. Melvin is AMAZING! Every instructor I’ve had in the program has been knowledgeable, committed, and it has been my privilege to have taken their class. I have also met some super women in this program. The friendships that I have developed over the semesters have meant so very much to me.”
