Whether you’ve been through it yourself or seen a loved one go through it, you know how hard addiction is to fight.
So many successful counselors are in recovery themselves or are close to someone who has or is experiencing active addiction.
Because of their own experiences, sometimes, counselors can empathize and show the patients that they can relate.
Imagine this: when someone you’ve worked with reports back to you that you helped them stay clean so they can go to work, provide for their family, be with their loved ones again, and start a new chapter in life, would it be a gratifying feeling?
If the thought of this gives you a satisfactory feeling, then a career in Addiction Counseling might just be the right fit for you.
