Review of Job Description
Recovery Support Staff (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – October 31, 2013
My typical work day is focus on drug rehab, problem solving, counseling and managing. Working at Odyssey House LA, I have learned in depth knowledge of addiction, mental, and behavioral health. Addiction is a disease. This disease can be won only if individuals are ready and open for change.
My co-workers and I are team players. The hardest part about the job is when I witness clients give up on their recovery and end up more mentally and behaviorally destroyed; and allow their addiction to take whole of them. I can say the most enjoyable part of the job is seeing clients successfully complete treatment and start encouraging clients they're able to do the same.
