Productive
Substance Use Disorder Clinician (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAOctober 19, 2017
You can get burned out fast due to high case load. Over worked and certainly under paid. VP needs to offer better incentives to their employees. Better time off and yearly increases, and more staffing to help with population.
Pros
Good learning experience for someone fresh out of college
Cons
low wages, getting paper work done in timely manner never happens too much

A Day at Work
Women's Hope Intake Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAMay 13, 2013
A typical day would be very fast paced. Everyday, there was something new to learn and different people to meet and network with. Everyday interaction with different clientele facing similar situations. Facilitating group meetings. The coworkers were enjoyable to be around. Small staff everyone knew each other and communicated in a team effort to produce a comprehensive treatment plan for each individual client. The hardest part of the job was at any chance a client could choose to not want to continue on the road to recovery, it is your job to convince the client that being in the program was their best and safest option for them. Most clients would state they just needed to be encourage, I had a good success rate with installing encouragement and positive reinforcement so in the end clients most stayed. Most enjoyable part was there was something new everyday, it kept me on my feet, keep me busy and when clients graduated from the program it was a good feeling to see how much progress, confidence, and self worth they built up that they didn't have when they first entered the program and just to know you had something to do with helping them advance with support to the next stage in their life.
