Rewarding work, but it can be emotionally draining, especially with patients who have a dual diagnosis. Colleagues are great, but there are some days you don’t see your coworkers because it gets that busy. You may be asked to work at one of several locations in Massachusetts, but it’s purely on a volunteer basis. It is a great opportunity to see the differences between locations. The differences in the quality of the facilities is puzzling and each clinic has its own culture. All the staff that work in the clinics are great. Depending on location, a clinic can be completely overwhelmed with patients and is standing room only or there are not enough patients for the providers to fill the schedule. Ask about the clinic load because it can be insanely busy and you work through lunch most days of the week or you may be at a clinic where your schedule is not filled, and you have the time to take a walk outside before you sit down for a leisurely lunch. Salary is great, but you will earn every penny of if you work at one of the busier clinics.
