What Does A Alcohol and Drug Counselor do?
Alcohol and Drug Counselors help people who have problems with alcohol and/or drugs. They counsel individuals to help them identify behaviors and problems related to their addiction. Counseling can be done on an individual basis, but is frequently done in a group setting. Counselors are trained to assist in developing personalized recovery programs that help establish healthy behaviors and provide coping strategies. Counselors must be able to recognize how addiction affects the entire person and those around him or her.
Substance abuse counselors typically do the following:
• Evaluate clients’ mental and physical health, addiction or problem behavior, and openness to treatment
• Help clients develop treatment goals and plans
• Review and recommend treatment options with clients and their families
• Help clients develop skills and behaviors necessary to recover from their addiction or modify their behavior
• Work with clients to identify behaviors or situations that interfere with their recovery
• Teach families about addiction or behavior disorders and help them develop strategies to cope with those
• Refer clients to other resources or services, such as job placement services and support groups
• Develop and conduct outreach programs to help people learn about addictions and destructive behavior how
to avoid them

Where do Alcohol and Drug Counselors work?
Counselors may work in a private practice, community health organizations, day treatment programs, or hospitals. Many counselors work in an office where they see clients throughout the day, although counselors may frequently be required to provide services out in the community.
Increasing demand for healthcare services has created more career opportunities in the healthcare industry than ever before – Growth is expected as more people seek treatment for their addictions or other behaviors and drug offenders are increasingly sentenced to treatment rather than jail time.
