Licensed Addiction Counselor

Accurate Care LLC Baton Rouge, LA
  • Posted: over a month ago
  • Full-Time

  • A substance abuse counselor is a support system for people with drug and alcohol problems, eating disorders and other behavioral issues. They teach individuals how to modify their behavior with the intention of full recovery. Because clients are susceptible to relapses, many substance abuse counselors work with clients on an on-going basis.

Other duties include:

  • Meeting with clients to evaluate their health and substance problem
  • Identifying issues and create goals and treatment plans
  • Teaching clients coping mechanisms
  • Helping clients find jobs or reestablish their career
  • Leading group therapy sessions
  • Providing updates and progress reports to courts
  • Referring clients to support groups
  • Setting up aftercare plans
  • Meeting with family members and provide guidance and support

If you work specifically as a drug counselor, you’ll have the same types of tasks, but you’ll work strictly with clients suffering from drug abuse issues rather than eating disorders or gambling addictions.
