- Rehabilitation Counselors work with people who are physically,
mentally, or socially disabled resulting from work related injuries,
automobile accidents, hearing impairments, visual disorders, alcoholism,
drug abuse, physical disability, mental retardation, and psychiatric
disabilities. Rehabilitation Counselors assist these people through job
counseling, training, and assessments for how to successfully live
- Rehabilitation Counselors work in a variety of settings,
including state and federal agencies, schools, mental health clinics,
nursing homes, correctional centers, school systems, business and
industry, private rehabilitation, treatment facilities, recreation
programs, independent living centers, and other related areas.
- Although other human services and health care providers may
serve people with disabilities, it is Rehabilitation Counselors who are
uniquely qualified to provide vocational guidance and psychological
counseling to people with disabilities and their families.
- Rehabilitation counseling offers a variety of career options.
- Demand for Rehabilitation Counselors is VERY high and will
continue to grow. Currently there are not enough certified counseling
professionals to cover all the openings available.
