Basically, substance abuse (or behavioral disorder) counselors help people to tackle their dependencies, addictions and other problems with alcohol, drugs, gambling, substance abuse and eating disorders. They help individuals to identify behaviors and problems related to their addiction. This can be done on an individual basis, but it is frequently done in a group setting.
