What kind of alcohol and drug counseling job can one obtain with an Associate in Arts?
My boyfriend didn't have an associates at all and got a job as a Case Manager (working with addicts). He makes okay money (27K) and it's a great way to get your foot in the door. A lot of driving is involved- goes from hospital to rehab to shelter to sober house and back to office most days. But he loves it. He is in the process of getting an associates in drug counseling. Life experience is a big plus in these kinds of jobs, more than education.
