There is a need for heightened awareness among clinical mental
health counselors about substance abuse in the older adult population. As baby
boomers age, substance abuse is expected to triple by the year 2020…and it is

workers will gain awareness of the problem as well as valuable knowledge to
identify and support this population of older adults successfully.
