Career Resources Program

At Hotel California by the Sea, we understand that recovering from a substance use disorder does not just mean that someone quits using drugs or alcohol. To give sobriety longevity, someone must work to significantly improve every area of their life.  

At our drug rehab in Ohio, we treat people from every walk of life for substance use disorders and other co-occurring mental health conditions. However, without a strong support network and professional goals, it can sometimes prove more challenging for a client to continue on their path of sobriety after they leave our care.

That’s why we encourage our clients to take advantage of their time at Hotel California by the Sea. To get the most out of our program, we recommend utilizing each of our specialty programs, one of which is our Career Resources Program. 

This program consists of three pillars: 

  • Life skills training 
  • College
  • Job placement 

When most people enter rehab, they may expect to attend group therapy or individual therapy sessions. However, HCBTS goes further to address the other parts of a client’s life besides just their addiction, with our Career Resources program being a shining testimonial to this value. 

Hotel California by the Sea’s Career Resources program is a unique and exclusive program designed for those in our inpatient and outpatient facilities. This program has helped countless people turn their focus from drug and alcohol use, to building and improving their professional lives. Read on to learn more to get a quick breakdown of our Career Resources Program, its main components, and why it has changed the lives of so many of our clients. We take our clients from surviving to thriving.  

Life Skills Training

Many people who struggle with addiction and other co-occurring disorders have either had less of an opportunity to develop daily living skills or have long since forgotten these skills since the beginning of their addiction. Establishing the proper life skills during treatment can help clients maintain momentum once they eventually transition out of our program. 

The Life Skills Training portions of our Career Resource Program teaches clients to set goals, work towards those goals, and eventually attain those goals. Although clients of every age can benefit from the life skills training portion of the Career Resource Program, it is perhaps especially helpful to young adults with less experience in the workforce. 

Our Career Center helps clients with a variety of specific life skills, such as: 
  • Learning how to create and update an intriguing resume. 
  • How to plan properly and prioritize tasks. 
  • How to properly schedule days. 
  • How to be more organized. 
  • Creating and sticking to a realistic budget based on pay and living expenses. 

People who are young and struggled with a substance use disorder often aren’t able to form the proper habits to find or hold down past jobs during their addiction. At Hotel California by the Sea, Cincinnati, we help clients who don’t have the proper life skills to properly identify their skills, search for jobs, and be an exceptional employee.  

These life skills can help clients in their professional lives for years to come, and serve as the perfect cornerstone for when first entering the job market (or simply re-entering the job market as a newly sober individual). 

College and Career Planning

Many of our clients either stopped pursuing higher education or decided against college altogether once their drug or alcohol addiction swallowed their lives. 

With recovery comes the ability to gain clarity about where you left off and reorient yourself with where you’d like to land in your educational training. Academia is not an easy pursuit; for someone struggling with a mental health condition, they’ll likely need extra assistance when sorting through the intricacies of finding the right college, figuring out how to afford college, and actually attending classes and managing their coursework and time management. 

Sometimes, people in our care want to resume or begin their educational endeavors, but don’t know what they want to do for the rest of their lives yet. This is completely normal. At HCBTS, we help clients discover more about themselves through individual therapy and personal assessments. Through these practices, clients can gain more clarity about themselves, their talents, and their deepest desires. 

There are multiple colleges in Ohio, as well as many online schools for clients to begin or resume their higher learning. 

Our advisers can help clients: 

  • By helping them build custom education plans. 
  • Assisting them in transferring credits from prior institutions. 
  • Creating study groups to offer support to clients currently attending college. 
  • Coordinated transportation for those traveling for school.   

Our educational program, however, doesn’t just help those who wish to go to college. We also help clients navigate the process of gaining their GED and other certifications. Whatever your educational goals, Hotel California by the Sea will work with you to help you reach them. 

Some colleges near Cincinnati, Ohio:  

  • University of Cincinnati 
  • Cincinnati State (2 year programs, certificates, and pre-bachelors programs) 
  • Xavier University 
  • Miami University – Middletown 
  • Mount St. Joseph University 
  • Cincinnati Christian University
