People go to drug counseling to get rid of their addiction for drugs, its a type of psychiatric treatment which involves building a strong character which is unaffected by drug temptations. Sometimes it involves medication too. To answer your second question, yes many people who were previously drug addicts become counselors because they have the experience on that particular matter, so they can give more relevant advices than a person who has never been addicted to drugs.
