Mental Health Clinician (Former Employee) –  Berkeley, CAFebruary 4, 2013
They were day and overnight shifts. A typical day would include individual meetings with clients, two or three groups: recovery, mental health, house chores, outings groups. Counselors gave and monitor medication intake.
I learned a great deal about dual diagnosis treatment, drug culture in different racial and cultural environments. I also had the chance to improve my crisis intervention skills.
My co-workers were an interesting mix of mental health therapist as myself and ex-addicts, both groups exchanging knowledge and experience.
This was a hard job due to the fact that it was not easy to treat clints who were severe mentally ill and hard core addicts in a residential setting where people from very different backgrounds needed to learn how to live together.
The most enjoyable part of the job was a supportive administration who really care for the residents well being.
Pros
very compassionate and respectful environment for clients.
Cons
there was some tension between the mental health and the addiction counselors, the addiction counselors had the tendency to identify with the clients creating bounderies problems, the overnight shifts were stressful because there was just one counselor for 15 residents.
