What is an addiction counsellor?

A counsellor is a mental healthcare professional trained specifically to offer insight and advice on social, personal or psychological problems. Counsellors work with clients to overcome past wounds in order to move towards healing from emotional pain.

Addiction and mental health counselors offer practical and emotional support to people suffering from addiction, in one-on-one or group settings.
