The process of recovery from substance abuse is intricate and difficult to navigate on one’s own. It demands the expertise and assistance of professionals. In this context, counselors are at the heart of the process of making people overcome addiction and remain healthy and addiction-free for long. They create an environment that is both secure and non-discriminatory for people to express themselves including their thoughts, feelings, and actions about substance misuse. We will cover in detail the roles of counselors in substance abuse recovery, their individual tasks and responsibilities, benefits of getting one, how they help develop strategies for long term recovery, their importance in building a strong therapeutic relationship, their role in addressing mental health issues, and their support for the family while in treatment.

Many behaviors we encourage in men and think 'typical' of men, get in the way of physical and emotional health.
