PhD in Substance Addiction Counseling

If you obtain a PhD in substance addiction counseling, this signifies the end of a long academic track. It shows that you are someone who has undertaken the most thorough specialization in your chosen field. People who hold PhD (or PsyD or doctorate) degrees are considered to be experts in a specific area of study by academics and the public. A PhD in psychology counseling with a focus on substance abuse and addiction counseling will also expand your professional opportunities. In the field of alcohol or drug abuse, you will be able to apply the principles of mental health, psychology, and development, to help addicts achieve effective cognitive, behavioral, and systemic changes to improve their lives.
