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.

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.
