Go2asap.com: A substance abuse counselor will work with clients on their addiction to things like alcohol, marijuana, opiates, methamphetamine, or any other substance.  substance abuse psychologists are commonly referred to as chemical dependency counselors or addictions counselors, too. An alcohol counselor often works with clients on other addictions like sex and gambling, as well.
