What Does an Addiction Counselor Do?
With the help of an addiction counselor, you can begin to establish what exactly caused you to turn to drugs or alcohol, identify potential triggers and create a long-term plan to sustain your sobriety. Both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs rely heavily on the use of addiction counseling and these take place in individual or group formats.
An addiction counselor’s role is to:
- Provide unbiased emotional support for individuals going through a treatment program
- Conduct one-on-one therapy sessions to get to the root of the addiction
- Administer periodic drug tests
- Develop a specialized plan for treatment based on your individual needs
- Help you create an aftercare program based on care available in your area
Addiction counselors will also conduct group therapy sessions that often incorporate family members or other patients in addiction treatment.
Group therapy can lead to discussions about family dynamics and how unhealthy relationships can create or feed into addictive behaviors. Once these dysfunctions are identified, the patient can begin making important post-treatment plans
