Online Programs in Substance Abuse Counseling

Students in online substance abuse counseling programs are typically seeking licensure, and many online programs are designed with licensing requirements in mind. Since states have different licensing criteria, students should contact their state licensing bureaus to review requirements before enrolling in an online substance abuse counseling master's program. Students may be better off pursuing brick-and-mortar degrees in their states if the online substance abuse counseling programs they are entering will not satisfy their state licensing requirements.

In addition to coursework, almost all online programs in substance abuse counseling require pre-practicum fieldwork, in which students interact with clients on a limited basis, and several hundred hours of practicum. Courses may include theories of addiction counseling, research and assessment, and more. Most online substance abuse counseling programs offer elective courses in areas such as sexuality and addictive behavior.

Online Substance Abuse Counseling Degrees to Consider:

Capella University's Master of Science in addiction counseling consists of 11 core courses, a practicum, a six-week residential colloquium, and seven specialized courses. Practicum experiences are required as part of a 10-week online class. According to the university, this program focuses specifically on treating addictions alongside other mental health issues.

Arizona-based Grand Canyon University offers an online substance abuse counseling master's degree that can result in licensure for Arizona residents. Arizona students who graduate from the program can earn the Licensed Associate Substance Abuse Counselor designation. Other states also accept the program for licensure.

At the University of North Carolina, students who do not want a master's degree can earn a certificate in substance abuse and addiction counseling that will prepare them to become certified substance abuse counselors in North Carolina. Individuals who complete the program can also potentially become certified as clinical addiction specialists.

Introduction to Substance Abuse Counseling Careers

Substance abuse counselors have one of the most challenging types of counseling jobs, helping patients to overcome addiction to everything from drugs and alcohol to gambling. The behavioral issues a substance abuse counselor treats vary widely.

Substance Abuse Counseling Job Description

Substance abuse counselors may be employed by a number of organizations, from rehab facilities to prisons and community centers. A counselor meets with patients in order to not only identify addiction issues, but to also pinpoint the problematic behavior that contributes to the addiction. Through frequent meetings and personalized rehabilitation plans, substance abuse counselors can help their patients both overcome addiction and deal with the effects that addiction may have had on their personal life and career.

Substance abuse counselors may also treat friends and family members of those suffering from substance abuse issues. Due to the fact that many people with substance abuse problems are hesitant to seek help or uncertain of where to turn, another big part of the job may include community outreach.

 

Substance Abuse Counseling Requirements

The educational requirements for becoming a substance abuse counselor vary significantly from one state to the next. While some employers may accept only a high school diploma, the job usually requires a minimum of a bachelor's degree, preferably in a field like counseling or social work. In some cases a master's degree may be required. While some employers offer on-the-job training, many require candidates to already have applicable work experience. Useful experience could include previous counseling or social work, or even personal life experience as an addict.

Licensing requirements for substance abuse counselors also vary from one state to the next - at a minimum, a high school diploma and counselor certification is necessary. Many counselors choose to gain certification through the National Board for Certified Counselors. In addition, counselors will have to pursue continuing education courses throughout their careers not only to brush up on skills but also to maintain certification.

 

Substance Abuse Counseling Career Outlook

Employment opportunities for counselors of all types are expected to grow at a faster-than-average rate, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Thanks to an 27 percent projected increase in counselor jobs, an estimated 108,900 counselor positions will be in place by 2020. The median annual salary for substance abuse counselors is $38,120 according to the BLS.

 

Substance Abuse Counseling Trends

The growing demand for substance abuse counselors can be pinpointed to society's changing views of addiction. In recent years, we have become more knowledgeable about addiction and people are more open to seeking treatment than before. Changing attitudes about addiction have also affected the legal system in a big way--while in the past drug offenders were simply put behind bars, it's now more common to send these individuals to substance abuse treatment programs, which offer a more permanent solution than prison.

What you need to know as a substance abuse counselor

By Jeanette Issa, M.A.


Jeanette Issa is currently working as a counselor at the Men's Residential facility at DACCO, a substance abuse rehabilitation center, in Tampa, Florida. She has her master's degree in clinical psychology from Argosy University and is working towards obtaining licensure in mental health counseling.


FACT: The rate of illicit drug use among persons aged 12 or older was eight percent in 2008, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

FACT: Substance abuse counselor jobs are expected to grow 27% between 2010-2020, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Substance abuse (SA) counselors are in high demand due to the rates of drug and alcohol use in the U.S. Counselors work in rehabilitation facilities where the ultimate goal is to restore substance users/abusers to good health. This restoration process can include detox, outpatient, and residential treatment centers.

I am currently a counselor in a 6-month residential facility for men who abuse drugs and alcohol. Often, dealing with substance abuse can go hand-in-hand with dealing with mental health issues. Over the course of my work, I've helped clients with mood disorders, codependency and dysfunctional family systems. Below, I'll take you through understanding stages of recovery, setting boundaries and being self-aware as a counselor.

Be Patient

A high level of patience is a key value for a substance abuse counselor. In general, you might see clients that are in severe denial; in fact, some clients are at a facility by court order. Counselors must realize that they will be met with resistance from many, if not most, of their clients. The stages of change during treatment are important to know. They are:


  • Precontemplation: denial
  • Contemplation: accepting that something may be wrong
  • Preparation: gaining the information to learn how to change
  • Action: actively changing behaviors of the addictive lifestyle
  • Maintenance: staying clean and sober

Different tactics are recommended for clients at different stages of change. Counselors should learn how to "roll with resistance" in order to achieve results and prevent a power struggle, particularly with clients in the precontemplation stage. For instance, you may ask someone who doesn't feel they have a SA problem to list 10 pros and 15 cons for using drugs. Obviously, in the client's perspective, the drugs have positive effects, or they wouldn't use them. It's important to acknowledge those positive aspects as you subtly challenge the resistant client by asking them to list the negative consequences of their drug use.

Set Boundaries

Another major concern for a substance abuse counselor is maintaining boundaries. Many who face substance abuse issues have backgrounds without fixed boundaries. Rules are unclear, inconsistent, confusing, unstructured, or unrealistic. It is critical that counselors enforce rules and boundaries with clients in order to provide the client with skills they may have never developed growing up.

Learn Self-Awareness

One of the most critical attributes a counselor should have is self-awareness. You should be able to evaluate your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and be open to challenging them. You must be able to "practice what you preach." Decisions might be made that you don't agree with. For example, a scenario arose in which I was the only one on my treatment team opposed to the early discharge of a client. It was difficult for me to accept this decision, but ultimately I had to let the client be responsible for his own actions. Being more self-aware as a counselor helps you to keep responsibility for actions on clients and work through your own feelings about cases.

As a counselor you will work with a variety of people and personalities and deal with many different issues. Ultimately, though, counseling starts with the self, and then works its way to the clients.
