The program where I've been working for the past two years is being eliminated
Program Associate - CSU/Ambulatory Detox (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – April 13, 2015
The company I work for is a Community Service Board through the State of Georgia. I am sad to say that the Ambulatory Detox Program is being eliminated at the end of June. I feel that this is a very needed program and I hope in time it will be reopened.
A typical day for me is enrolling clients in our program, scheduling an appointment for them to see our doctor, sending out daily reports, answering phones, scanning charts, basic clerical duties.
I have learned to be more compassionate with people dealing with the effects substance abuse and addiction and the grip it can have on you.
I have enjoyed working with my Business Manager and the nurses. We all get along and help each other when needed.
The hardest part of my job is seeing clients come back after they have relapsed.
The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing clients who come back in just to say hello and tell us how well they are doing and how much they appreciate us for helping them get clean from drugs or alcohol.
