This is what i have so far..
I am very eager about establishing my career as a certified substance abuse counselor. I would like to work at any mental health clinics, hospitals, or behavioral health services. The position would be very friendly, non- judgmental, and welcoming atmosphere. I will be working with a successful team in a dynamic organization. Anderson/Oconee County behavioral health service would be the clinic of my choice it offers, the community-based prevention, assessment, and intervention treatment and referral services. It is a very well-known and caring facility. The experiences that I have had were my biological parents abused drugs and became addicts. I would like to help people that have chosen a life just like them. I want to be able to help addicts overcome a dependency problem and have sense of a camaraderie or a feeling of obligation to help others with the same problem they’ve addicts along the path of recovery in to discover a life of sobriety, this to me is the best gift to offer a drug and alcohol addict has. When becoming a certified substance abuse counselor, you’ll need to have empathy, compassion, warmth, a strong understanding of addiction, and the desire to help others. I feel a great satisfaction in helping to rehabilitate former drug addicts. I want to give hope to people who often see no light at the end of the tunnel. To be able to help addicts along the path to recovery in order to discover a life of sobriety, which to me is to offer the best gift drug and alcohol addicts ever receive.
