Individuals who specialize in providing counseling in an individual or group setting that helps people with alcohol and/or drug use disorders better understand the nature of the disorder and supports their recovery efforts. Substance abuse counselors also offer assistance to family members and others affected by the situation with the objective of helping them cope with and provide support for the individual undergoing treatment. They refer clients for other support services (such as medical evaluation and treatment, social services and employment support) as needed; monitor the progress of the client to evaluate the success of the therapy; and adapt the treatment plan as needed. Many also work at the community level and are involved in the development and implementation of substance use disorder prevention programs.
