What is your position and what tasks do you perform at work?
I do several different jobs at Narconon Colorado, but mainly I work a lot on helping people get through their programs. As a Certified Addiction Counselor, I do a lot of clinical interviews and one-on-one sessions with people. I also work as a Case Supervisor and a Course Supervisor where I help with programming and overseeing people’s individual cases. When people are having a difficult time I help them work through it.
How long have you been working in the addiction field?
Almost six years.
What made you decide to work in the addiction field?
I was on the other side of it for a long time. When I got help and got clean, I found out that I can really help other people get through this. I can see that my group is making a difference every day in the struggle against addiction.
What have been some of your biggest wins working in the addiction field?
Every time I do a graduation ceremony and see people reunited with their family is a win for me. It is extremely rewarding to see someone get through something they thought they couldn’t do.
If you could give one piece of advice to someone currently struggling with addiction what would it be?
The biggest thing I would say would be to get help. Find a group of people who know how to get a person through their addiction. It won’t always be easy but trust the process.
What is your favorite thing about working at Narconon?
I really enjoy the people I work with. Most of all I love making a difference and seeing people succeed.
