The proliferation of opioid prescriptions has significantly increased the misuse of these drugs. Opioid overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. Counselors have the ability to facilitate prevention, motivation, and recovery in communities impacted by opioid addictions. Supervisors and educators must prepare counselors to address the needs of people with Opioid Use Disorders, including cultivating appropriate skills and knowledge among developing counselors.
