I work as an intermittent employee, I am only required to work one shift per month, however, I work more than that now that I am out of school. I have referred many counselors to Denver Cares as the environment is professional, clean, and team-oriented.
I have learned many things working in detox with the chronically homeless and addicted population and have led many clients toward treatment and a different lifestyle.
The most difficult part of the job can be dealing with an intoxicated person that is belligerent or aggressive.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing my co-workers and rarely working with the same people twice. All of the staff members I have worked with have displayed a friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate attitude.
Aggressive and belligerent intoxicated clients
