Talk to Someone about your Addiction
It’s never too late to stop.
If you have a close friend or relative struggling with substance use, we understand how difficult it is to watch them slowly lose control. It’s hard to know what to do or say because you do not want to worsen the situation.
When you’re deciding whether or not you should speak up, you probably have mixed feelings about getting involved in someone else’s life or you believe that someone else will step in and speak to them instead. However, keep in mind that alcohol and drug addiction is one of the leading causes of death.
People with alcohol or drug related problems need help. Oftentimes, they realize they need help but are afraid to ask or they’re in denial. Realizing that they need help is a great first step to recovery. Reaching out to drug and alcohol counselling is a common treatment many addicts go for as counselling can help you resist cravings and learn how to control your life without drugs or alcohol.
A drug and alcohol counsellor’s role is to provide support, counselling, and treatment for individuals struggling with substance use and as a result, it can be a risky job. It is also a rewarding job with a hefty amount of responsibility as this career allows you to save lives and make a difference in the world. Drug and alcohol counsellors work collaboratively with other service providers such as psychiatrists, doctors, and nurses, to ensure that patients’ are getting the appropriate treatment and care needed.
It is important for all professions, including drug and alcohol counsellors, to be protected under insurance. Professional liability insurance is a legal requirement that covers claims against you due to negligence.
