Clients in our outpatient and intensive outpatient programs will have the chance to pursue their academic and career goals during treatment. They will participate in 4-6 week-long programs where they can acquire a skill or trade. Clinical staff will be available in the evenings for those seeking employment or academic courses during the day. Through using these programs, clients can feel an increased sense of self-worth and work towards obtaining gainful employment after treatment.
Our program offers workshops where clients build valuable life skills such as resume building, computer use and tips for interviewing. We also offer outside opportunities for them to volunteer at local organizations and build their academic skills. These opportunities are for those interested in taking charge of their job search by exploring who they are, what they want and how to get there. This workshop will teach the latest job search processes, tools and strategies.
Clients will take personality and career assessments to determine their interests and what they want to accomplish. They will identify their own personal strengths and any transferrable skills, which can help them in a future job. Our goal is to help them become more aware of their own personal strengths and how to utilize them for success.
There are workshops available that teach clients better ways to
manage their finances and learn about funding their future education. They will identify ways to increase income, decrease expenses, understand basic taxation, and rebuild their credit so you can build a solid financial foundation. We also offer a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) workshop and a college reentry application workshop where they will learn about the the differences between loans, grants, and scholarships.
The vocational program helps our clients build a strong foundation in their recovery and leave treatment with a plan of action. There are a variety of tools to help them move forward in their chosen career path and start building the life they have always wanted. These resources help them develop an effective balance with life, work and recovery.
