dc.description.abstractThe complex makeup of the substance abuse treatment workforce poses unique challenges to this field. One interesting dynamic is the high rate of counselors who are personally recovering from addictions. It was proposed that counselor recovery status would serve as an important factor in understanding work attitudes in this field. Based on social identity theory, it was expected that counselors in recovery would identify more with their profession and report higher professional and organizational commitment, job satisfaction, and lower turnover intentions. Data from a longitudinal study of substance abuse counselors from across the country were analyzed to see if recovery status is related to these work attitudes. The mediating role of professional commitment on the recovery status-- work attitudes relationship was also examined. Results show that counselor recovery status is directly related to professional commitment and indirectly related to the other three attitudes through its relationship with professional commitment.
