There is a national shortage of qualified therapists able to help people overcome problems associated with addiction.
People can be addicted to all sorts of things, from gambling, alcohol and drugs to shopping, stealing and sex - to name only a few. Thousands of people suffer from addictive behaviour and many seek professional help to overcome it.
This course will enable you to learn about the different types and causes of addiction and gain the knowledge to offer appropriate therapy and support to clients.
If you are already working as a counsellor, this is an excellent opportunity to specialise in the area of addiction and addictive behaviour. However, the course may also appeal to novices who are considering a career in counselling.

I am finding the course very interesting and have been doing a lot of research, however it has been many years since i have studied anything so am finding it a little difficult to take in.
