World class treatment center
Lead CD Technician at Hazelden Fellowship Club (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MNMarch 15, 2015
Pros: client/patient 1:1 face time. one can make a difference!
Cons: old computer system. need to update now!
Merged with Betty Ford in 2014, Hazelden is a world class treatment center. Excellent 1:1 with clients is rewarding and challenging. The work is life saving and relentless. Hardest part is accepting the failure rate of recovery. The most enjoyable is seeing clients living life large!

Hazelden offers the best treatment money can buy
Employee (Former Employee), OregonJune 20, 2013
Above average salary; wonderful co-workers, management . . . out of touch with the mission. If you accept a job here, be prepared to employ a lot of self-care.

An inpatient facility with a wide variety of issues and opportunities.
Chemical Dependency Specialist (Former Employee), Newberg, ORApril 26, 2013
There was no real "typical" day of work. I would work with staff at shift change to determine priorities for the evening. I worked with new admissions by providing orientations and counseling for new patients. I also provided counseling services for clients as their needs arose throughout the evening. Group therapy was provided most days, during which assignments were presented.

I learned about effective counseling techniques and how to work on my feet. My skills developed as an effective communicator and I learned how to challenge clients to work toward their own solutions.

At Hazelden, I learned about compromise when working with my co-workers when we did not see eye-to-eye. I learned about the importance of patience and discussion in working out differences between co-workers.

The most difficult part of the job was having more admissions than we had staff to cover. We had to think on our feet during these situations and work to accept and work with unpredicted events.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the clients as their needs arose. The job never ceased to surprise me, and watching clients work out their issues and reach their own conclusions was the most rewarding part of the job.
