My purpose at this location was to assist those fighting with addiction problems and all that goes with it, (i.e. childhood abuse, low self esteem, familial issues, etc). I was there to assist in the dedication for change in the client's life away from addictive behavior and the substances that were giving them false relief.
The organization was trying hard to help those who had been court ordered to find a way out of the use and abuse of substances. I tried to focus on ways the client could address problems in their lives, (family, job, or lack thereof, education) and how to forge ahead. When working with people, everyday is a learning experience into the lives of others and trying to find a place where working together we could find a better way.
At this organization, upper management was excellent, but for some reason there was in fighting amongst some of the long standing employees, (why, I have no idea). I was there for one reason and that was to learn about ways to assist people with addictions how to move forward in their lives and I adhered to that purpose.
Helping others that were lost in their lives
Co-worker envy, deceitful behavior causing wasted energy.
