Substance abuse counselors are charged with assisting patients through drug rehabilitation programs and offering techniques for handling addiction. Patients may work with substance abuse counselors individually, but treatment is often provided in group sessions. Counselors assist patients with crisis management and coping strategies; they also help family members and friends of patients acclimate to lifestyle and behavioral changes. One of the primary tasks of any substance abuse counselor is evaluating patient progress during therapy.
There are a number of duties associated with a career in substance abuse counseling. In addition to treatment, substance abuse counselors might need to possess knowledge of drug and alcohol testing to ensure a patient is following treatment plans and medical instructions. Substance abuse counselors often work closely with doctors, nurses and social workers to provide patients with comprehensive therapy and treatment.
Substance abuse counselors work in group and one-on-one situations to provide support to people with different substance and behavioral addictions or even eating disorders. As a substance abuse counselor, you may also need to collaborate with doctors, nurses, and therapists on a patient's therapy and treatment.
