What Type of Qualifications Do I Need to Work at an Addiction Rehab Centre?

Question by Kait 😀: What type of qualifications do I need to work at an addiction rehab centre?
I’m currently in the process of getting my BA-H in Psychology. I want to be a counselor in an addiction center. Not the person dealing with any medicine/ drug withdrawl or biological issues, more on the psychotherapy end of the spectrum. Finding out what happened, why it happened and how to help them get better.

Do I need to become a psychologists (PhD) Or can I do this with a master in clinical psych/ counseling psych, Master of Social Work?
