This answer was rated:

I sought mental health care starting in 2003 due to some financial difficulties I was having. I was told it's always okay to seek the overnight rehab though I had heard rumors about it. I went and stayed there and was unhappy when I couldn't afford to transport myself to outpatient counseling at AA and the group came into my home doing things I won't describe. Years later I had to go back to the rehab because I was breaking down with losing my customers at my job and making no profit. So I went back and had to attend a day treatment. I was afraid of them but attended. 6 months later I got released and sought outpatient counseling, later they referred me back to day treatment because I was doing nothing. When I quit attending there I got in trouble and was unable to eat or do normal things due to their punishment. I wasn't put in jail or brought in. I went to the ER starving and they referred me back to mental health where I was told I must attend day treatment again. I didn't attend for a while and got in trouble. Now I attend day treatment finally and may have to go for another year, it's been almost 2 Years. I'm getting use to doing day activity and sort of appreciate it for something to do. I have my needs and am alright. Now I wanted to know about majoring in Psychology. I was a Psychology Major for a few years and have transfer credits. There's a program where I'd be almost done with the Major. Do you believe it's a good choice or even a legal one to Major in Pscyh? Would I be able to work in Psych. legally? Noone at the day treatment has mentioned me not majorring in psych or my past trouble I got into. They know because they implemented some of the trouble. So sorry for the long story I just wanted to know if Psych. is a good Major for me? I also went through a Bankruptcy and was told studying CRJ wouldn't be welcome for me but that was a long time ago. I have nothing verifying this but remember what they said. After so long with nothing about not majorring in anything, am I free to study what I want to?

Thank you for your question.

It is a perfectly legal choice for you to obtain a degree in Psychology and pursue a career in it. Many recovering addicts pursue this career because you have a insight into the mind of the people you will help. There are no legal problems with what you want to do.
