Well I just got accepted a great university, Grand Canyon University.  I want to become a psychiatrist, but I need to know if Psychology would be a good major for me. Im looking at majors, but Im not for sure which to chose. I really want to help the addicts but im not for sure on the pathway to doing that. Can you please help?

Major in something that you enjoy. You can major in anything and go to medical school.
Public health, sociology, social work,  might give you some background in helping those with drug addiction. Talk to people in the field and ask them.
