Substance Abuse Counselor Job Growth

June 13, 2011

Here at the Academy for Addiction Professionals we believe that becoming a licensed drug and alcohol or mental health counselor is a fantastic move for personal and career development. No matter what specialization you choose you will be entering a growing industry that offers opportunity and job satisfaction.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has projected an employment increase of substance abuse and behavioral disorder counselors of 21% between 2008 and 2018. Further the projected employment increase for mental health counselors during that same period is 24%. This underscores the significant prospects that those who enter the substance abuse and mental health counseling field may have.
