National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Program Worker (Former Employee), Mcleod Lake, BC – September 11, 2013
Pros: Able to work outside by the campfire or the lake.Cons: long hours
A typical day at work was about supporting people to deal with their addictions in a forward, honest fashion.
I learned a lot about people with addictions and Motivational Interviewing techniques.
Coworkers were very supportive.
The hardest part of the job was the distance I had to travel to get there, making my days 12 to 14 hours.
The most enjoyable part of the job was sharing in people's successes.
