Educational Requirements
There is no one way to get into the field of addictions counseling. However, to increase your chances of getting a job in this field (and to earn higher wages), you should have formal training in addictions counseling. Bachelor’s, master’s, and associate degree programs in this area are offered at a number of colleges. Shorter certificate programs are also available; students who enroll in these programs often already have a bachelor’s degree in a related area, such as psychology or social work.

Personality Traits
Success Story
When I was in the 7th grade, I became interested in acting. This interest carried on into the 8th grade, and that was when I first auditioned for a play. 7th grade year I was in one, but I didn’t audition, so I was an alternate for one of the lead actors. So in my 8th grade year I auditioned for the lead, knowing it was a big thing to consider, but I loved acting so much I just had to try. So come a week later after the audition, I was told I had gotten the lead, the part I wanted originally. I was so excited, I was determined to read the entire script, and I did. About a month went by of constant practicing, then come the day of competition everyone gave it their all. Judging came, then a man announced the awards. I had gotten best actress, and I remember I was so excited to receive the award. Now with my experience, I hope to win the same title next year, and then on.
