We can see that the addiction treatment landscape is changing all around us and it is imperative that we adapt to make sure that our centers remain relevant. It is for this reason that we suggest that all addiction counselors, and those wishing to become counselors, take the time to read trade magazines and news and stay abreast of the ever-changing industry in which we work.
