 Employment of substance abuse and behavioral disorder
counselors is expected to grow by 27 percent from 2010 to 2020,
faster than the average for all occupations. Growth is expected as
more people seek treatment for their addictions or other behaviors
and drug offenders are increasingly sentenced to treatment rather
than jail time.
