It depends. On whether you want to do research or work with patients. Clinical psychology is the type of psychology that allows you to work with patients.
Clinical psychology. Clinical psychologists help people with addictions. In my opinion however, there is no such thing as someone with an alcohol or drug problem. People do, on the other hand, have emotional problems and they use drugs or alcohol to deal with them. Clinical psychologists deal with those kinds of emotional imbalances.
