Nice Place to start out for experience in the medical field
Medical Support Staff (MSS) (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLFebruary 5, 2014
Pros: a good place to stabilize the adolescents coming in and out
Cons: not seeing these clients that are repeaters
A typical day at work could be a good day and or it could be a bad day. I have learned how to work with children with behavorial problems, substance and drug abuse withdrawal, alcohol and mentally challenge clients. Management and my co-workers are ok. the hardest part of my job is seeing so many adolescents come and go through our doors (which is a – more... secured facility). the most enjoyable part of my job is working and educating my clients on HIV/AIDS. – less

Rewarding and challenging job, enjoyable work atmosphere
HUD Case Manager (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: able to help others, good health benefits and leave time
Cons: short breaks, low pay
The usual day at work is 9a-6p and always a steady flow of people needing assistance. It is a campus of about 100 people recovering for substance use and focusing on returning to living independently. I have learned the importance of time management and the function of being a team player in relation to management and coworkers. The environment of the – more... work place functions a lot smoother when focused on being a team. Nonetheless, have learned how to sharpen the problem solving skills when assisting others through early recovery. Our team, is focused on helping others, being a client advocate, and assisting with connecting our residents with the appropriate services/needs. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the attitudes of some of our residents. The most enjoyable part of our job is watching the previous residents return to help others recover and let the staff know how well their life is going (or if struggling how they are getting through the struggles successfully). – less

Pros: making an impact

Typical day was 12 hour shift. Approximately 7-10 admissions per night. I learned a large amount about addiction and the behaviors that follow an addiction. I worked with a great staff of vary knowledgeable nurses and doctors. Hardest part of being a detox nurse was learning how to read and communicate with a person who is showing signs of addiction – more... or addict behavior.

Positive, caring, professional atmosphere for helping others within a counseling team environment.
Adolescent Outpatient Counselor (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLJuly 11, 2013
Pros: health and dental benefits, caring and professional atmosphere, insightful staff meetings with encouraging management, and plenty of rewarding challenges.
Cons: some legal issues did prevent us from being able to have more influence in the lives of some clients, but we did our best in affecting positive change in their lives.
I had the pleasure of working for Gateway Community Services in the early 1990's, until I had my first child. I found the Adolescent Outpatient Department to be a warm, fun, and creative place to be part of a professional and caring counseling team. My immediate supervisor, Frances Broadhurst, afforded team members the opportunity to work in a variety – more... of facilities and situations, which allowed me to learn several different positions and familiarize myself with various therapeudic options. My responsibilities included individual and group therapy sessions, educational intervention groups, play and art therapy, preparing treatment plans and other legal documentation. – less
