Substance Abuse Counselor Jobs
At our drug treatment facilities, counselors serve a very important purpose. A counselor listens to the problems that a patient has to help them get to the root of what causes their addiction issues. Most addiction problems (especially with young people) have an underlying cause or outside event that triggers addictive behaviors. A crucial part of successful addiction treatment is identifying these underlying causes and how they affect any addictive habits.
Aside from identification of underlying issues, addictive habits have to be responded to in the form of corrective behaviors such as 12-step programs and coping strategies. As no two people are alike, each treatment program is monitored and carefully reviewed for effectiveness and to treat the individual patient’s needs.
A counselor also does more than just deal with addictions. They also help guide a young person through understanding their addiction, how to work through it, and how to approach treatment. We especially like to focus on the importance that family plays in recovery as addiction has profound effects on families and families play a key role in helping and supporting recovery.
Another area of treatment is the outpatient component. This involves helping with gainful employment, continued support, the setting of goals, assistance with legal matters if needed, group therapy sessions, and providing general guidance.
