Hotel California By The Sea’s Career Resources Program
Hotel California by the Sea’s career resources program, developed by certified substance abuse counselors and licensed clinical professionals, exists to cater to the needs of clients who are in the process of rebuilding their lives, free of drugs and alcohol.
While attending substance abuse treatment at an alcohol and drug rehab center, there is an emphasis on group and individual cognitive behavioral therapy. Individuals spend a lot of time focusing on themselves, their disease, and progressing towards the return to their lives outside of a substance abuse treatment setting.
In some cases, people early in their recovery at a drug rehab center run the risk of becoming overwhelmed at the prospect of “starting over.” For others it’s a feeling of anxiety, as the reality sinks in that they’re just starting to experience life for the very first time. The substance abuse counselors at HCBTS who are in recovery themselves know these feelings well, and it’s why this program was personal to them in its development.
HCBTS takes pride in aiding clients with the professional goals included within their individual treatment plans. The elements of the career resource program aim to accomplish just that.
Substance Abuse Counselors for Professionals
The potential consequences of substance use disorder are vast. These negative experiences often go un-addressed until a person enters an alcohol and drug rehab center. Here, with the help of a professional substance abuse counselor, such effects of addiction can be critically examined. Among the various consequences experienced by people who suffer with a substance use disorder, are those that negatively impact professional and educational paths.
Certified counselors, licensed therapists and mentors work closely with individuals on the goals they set for themselves at the start of their stay in the inpatient alcohol and drug rehab center.
Ensuring that a person returns to a life where they can be productive, healthy, motivated and excited about their future is our focus.
Drug Rehab Center Individualized Career Resources Program
HCBTS’ Career Resource Program is a voluntary program for clients participating in our outpatient substance abuse treatment. Certified substance abuse counselors work closely with participants in the areas that they elect to focus on, depending upon their own goals and circumstances. Areas of specialty include employment application processes and etiquette, resume creation, interview preparation and a focus on developing professional communication skills. Assistance with applications to technical institutes, community colleges and universities is also available within the career resource program.
Why The Career Resources Program Matters:
- Career-specific feedback
- Assistance with creating resumes
- Stress management in the professional world
- Vocational and professional skill development
If application to, or continuation of some form of higher education is of interest to an individual attending HCBTS’ outpatient rehab, certified counselors are dedicated to exploring these possibilities with clients while in treatment.
substance abuse disorder can derail the dreams and aspirations of the sufferer, but this doesn’t mean that a person can’t overcome their addictions and live a life beyond their expectations. Through intensive work with licensed clinicians throughout inpatient and outpatient rehab, individuals have an opportunity to move past negative emotions that may have prevented them from taking beneficial steps in their personal and professional lives.
While participating in outpatient treatment at HCBTS’ alcohol and drug rehab center, individuals can partake in the college program and feel supported in the next best steps for them. Counselors are prepared to assist in the enrollment process to vocational programs or higher education institutes, the transfer of credits from one institution to another, locating the most ideal mode of transportation, and guide individuals in best time-management practices as it relates to both education and maintaining recovery.
Life Skills Program
The primary goal of HCBTS’ life skills program is to promote psychological and physical wellbeing by encouraging individuals to make decisions that have a positive impact on their lives.
While in the outpatient rehab setting at HCBTS, individuals participate in regular group therapy and individual meetings where the focus is on developing effective communication, emotional regulation, decision making capability and self-awareness.
Topics examined in the Life Skills Program:
- Financial literacy
- Organizational skills
- Budgeting and tracking monthly income and expenses
- Time management and balance
- Coping skills
- Medication management
