What Is It Like Being a Drug and Alcohol Counselor?

Question by desolatedelusion: What is it like being a drug and alcohol counselor?
I have always been interested in this field but I really don’t know much about it. Do you work in a drug treatment center? Are your patients there by choice? Are you comfortable financially? Is this a flooded field?Any dangers or bad personal experiences? Is this harder for females? I’ll also take any advice you’d like to give. Thank You.

Non 12 Step Programs provide real treatment that gets to the root of drug and alcohol addiction. Our non 12 step program was created by addiction pioneer, Dr. Akikur Mohammad.
