My partner is British and is a trained counsellor and specialises in addiction therapy. He is looking to live in the area of Alicante and Benidorm next September. How does he go about obtaining work? Where are rehab British speaking jobs located? What is the recovery scene like for English speaking communties?

If  your Partner  has a UK  🇬🇧 passport   it will  difficult  to  find  employment,  if  he married to you and yourself  has a EU passport  somewhat  easier,

Does  your  Partner  speak Spanish  as it would  be of  a good advantage  it  would  help  greatly  as too  amount of Therapy  centre  he could apply to would be larger than just English  speaking  Therapy  centres  if  he gain  the right to be employed  in EU

He'll also need to check that his qualifications are accepted in and transferable to Spain

And that can take months, some over a year.

Recovery Programmes for English speaking addiction 

Saw the title of this thread & thought "Finally! A service on offer for something that's really needed!"
But it turns out I was mistaken & whereas I thought it was an offer of treatment to help those who live on the Costa Blanca but still don't speak any Spanish & are addicted to speaking English, it's probably not that at all.
Ho hum...

Please let me know if he's succesful in setting up his practise, I do 2 x 3hr Spanish lessons every week and Duolingo every day but I still find myself drawn to English speaking people, I need therapy.

Don't bother, mate.

I did the same gag at the top of the thread & all it got me was the OP completely missing it & then DM'ing me to offer support for my apparent substance abuse addiction.

Good luck...

So you did Stan I think we both read it the same way, I wasn't sure if it was serious or not.
