Addiction counselling is a highly specialized counselling that views addiction seriously as a disease and not just a symptom of another underlying issue without removing the fact that those underlying issues have created an impact on the person’s behaviour toward alcohol or illicit drugs.
Assessment will be done on the problems and challenges of the person that led them to use drugs. A specialized treatment plan is constructed based on the evaluation. The therapy will then aid the client through their attempts to achieve the goals they set for themselves.
A recovery coach’s focus is to support a client in pursuing their own goals by offering them the tools and guidance needed in the day-to-day process to follow the path of recovery that they have chosen.
