Become a Substance Abuse Counselor in North Carolina - NC

Substance abuse counselors have one of the most important and influential jobs in the medical and/or mental health field. Their job is to help people addicted to substances (legal or illegal drugs and/or alcohol) overcome their addiction so as to return to a normal and productive life. In most states, including North Carolina, substance abuse counselors must have formal education and be certified in order to be able to work within the state. Substance abuse counselor certification in North Carolina involves the receipt of a high school diploma (or GED), a bachelor degree, and supervised practical training.

An applicant must also have 270 hours of board-approved training; evaluation forms filled out by a supervisor, co-worker, and colleague; and pay $125 written examination and $100 oral examination fees.
