Drug Abuse Counselors

Substance Abuse Counselors

When there is evidence of an addiction to drugs and alcohol, a drug abuse counselor can shed light on the extent of the problem and provide various solutions. Once they have identified the problem they can chart a course of action for the client and their family.

Exactly What Does a Drug and Alcohol Counselor Do?

A drug abuse counselor provides support and treatment options for people who suffer from alcoholism, drug addiction and other related behavioral disorders. They do not need to have a college degree and many will model their practice after the steps and principles of the 12-step program of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Recognizing the Need For Age & Gender Specific Recovery Community

Young people are driven to further succeed in the sober lifestyle when they are a valued part of a peer-centered recovery.
