Enough to buy the booze, but not enough to buy the drugs.

Best Answer

not much if you work in the city....my partner is a drug and alcohol counsellor working in a government agency above the 26 parallell in western australia....he and the other Pilbara counsellors are the highest paid in the state after 3.5 years of fighting a reclassification through the union..if he was to go back to the city he would have to take a 30,000 pay cut.....and they want a university degree...several years of counselling experience etc...<br />
cheers ps..he does it cause he loves it..not for the money.

This is old info (2001), but better than no info! :-)<br />
Try contacting a local university career counselor as well. They will have more up to date information for you.<br />

I hope it all goes well! :-)

Best Answer

Not sure the salary, but I know you would need a master's degree to counsel anyone. You could do it with an MSW (Master of Social Work) with a concentration in alcohol and substance abuse. You would also need to be licensed (such as an LCSW).

Best Answer

Depends on the State. But it is not a big-money profession, and you need to be certified.

Best Answer

I'm not sure, but I relatively certain it is less than they deserve.
