This qualification is designed to prepare you for an entry-level role in the alcohol and other drugs sector, where you will provide services and interventions for clients experiencing drug and alcohol dependency.
The course will provide you with the skills, knowledge and experience to support people with alcohol and other drug (AOD) abuse problems and implement health promotion and community interventions.
The welfare and community services sector is one of Australia’s fastest growing sectors and is expected to continue growing. (Job Outlook)
Employment of drug & alcohol workers is predicted to grow much faster than the average for all occupations.
Growth is expected in addiction and mental health counselling services, as the potential positive effects of such programs are increasingly recognised, and as more of these programs are covered by health insurance policies.
Demand for drug & alcohol workers may increase as programs for counselling services for drug offenders are mandated.
