Interested in helping addicts? Keen to learn about counselling? Then this would be an excellent course for you. It covers everything from an exploration of addiction to understanding the different types of addiction like drink, drugs, gambling shopping and sex. It also covers diagnosis medication and legislation. This course will be particularly valuable to anyone working in, or planning to work in, addiction counselling.

Course Description

This is an excellent course if you are considering a career as an Addiction Counsellor.

Addiction affects hundreds and thousands of people and there is a national shortage of trained therapists to assist them.
