Really working in drug and alcohol rehab needs a counselor training and experience in the particular field. This is an ideal job for those who are already involved in the helping professions like nurses, school counselors, social workers, ministers and other youth volunteers. Alcohol and Drug Counseling is a demanding and rewarding field. The competition in this field is also very less as very few persons have explored such a career.

Hope this career would attract more people as their is a high demand for councilors in rehab centers.
