My introduction in the social services community!
Intake Drug Assessment Coordinator (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – September 25, 2012
I spent the vast majority of my day providing data entry for new treatment intakes, as well as meeting with respective substance abuse counselors and conferring with them in regards to sought treatment for, often court-mandated, patients. I gained knowledge about the different kinds of treatment that is provided (at times, multi-dimensional), etc.
For the most part, I enjoyed working for a substance abuse treatment facility and learned a great deal. However, it could be a difficult place to work, as often patients relapse and serious ramifications often occur. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the ability to work with not just my co-workers, but helping other people seek and gain treatment/help.
flexible hours, working and helping others, and the knowledge gained.
