I'm currently going to college for Equine Health after years of having my passion for horses, but i've somewhat had a change. My brother committed suicide recently after years of dealing with addiction and depression. It has really hit home for me that i'm honestly thinking of going to college for Substance abuse counseling. I have one year left of my current degree so i'm going to go ahead and finish it. And in a year if i'm still strongly thinking about doing substance abuse counseling then I may attend a college at home and get a degree in that.
Has anyone else change their careers? Or is anyone on the forum a substance abuse counselor?
