Substance abuse counseling will have you working with a diverse caseload of clients. You will teach individuals how to modify their behavior with the intention of full recovery. Because clients are susceptible to relapses, you may work with clients on an on-going basis. Your work duties as a substance abuse counselor may include conducting interviews with potential patients, administering periodic drug tests, and conducting group and individual counseling sessions. You will also handle duties such as reviewing records to assess treatment program readiness, keeping records detailing treatment and progress, and developing appropriate, personalized plans for treatment based on individual history and needs. To ensure patients receive the proper care, you may review and analyze patient treatment plans to evaluate progress and meet with other staff members and health professionals to discuss patient progress. When patients are ready to leave treatment, you continue to help by developing aftercare programs and follow-up procedures. You'll help your patients identify sources of negative behavior and understand the effects that these behaviors have on loved ones. The overall goal is to help these individuals overcome their addictions and become self-sufficient.
