Licensure and Career Opportunities
As a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor, you are qualified to work in a wide spectrum of treatment facilities serving individuals with substance abuse disorders and their families. The LCADC license also allows you to be a private practitioner and to receive third party payment through a variety of health insurance companies.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of substance abuse and behavioral disorder counselors is projected to grow 22 percent over the next ten years, much faster than the average for all occupations. Growth is expected as addiction and mental health counseling services are increasingly covered by insurance policies.
