Masters in Addiction Counseling

Masters in Addiction Counseling

If you have always been interested in offering therapeutic counsel to those who are facing difficulties in their lives, you are fit to earn a Masters in Addition Counseling. Such a program will prepare you to prevent substance abuse, counsel individuals and families with these issues, and perform interventions for people currently suffering from an addiction. The types of classes you can expect to take are titled such things as the psychology of addiction, sociology, crisis intervention, pharmacology aspects of abused drugs, treatment evaluation, and treatment resources. You will also learn group counseling skills and the laws and regulations that are pertinent to this field.

There are numerous locations you could choose to earn such a practical degree that you can use to serve the lives of others for years to come. Many students opt for the traditional route of learning in a classroom setting. However, since many people entering Addiction Counseling Master’s Programs have outside careers that they earn with their Bachelors degree, this can often put too great of a strain on students. That is why online classes are being taken more often by people who want to earn an accredited education in a faster, more convenient way.

The main career you can seek with your addiction counseling degree is as a substance abuse counselor, where you will work in a medical setting such as a hospital or clinic. If you have a strong desire to help people work through their personal problems, this is absolutely a degree and career you should look into. While someone with a Bachelors degree could earn between $26,000 and $47,000 a year with their degree, you can expect to make up to double that amount with your completed Masters degree.
