We are hiring compassionate and experienced Substance Abuse Counselor's to work in at The Camp! This is a key role whose primary goal is to provide a safe, supportive, nurturing environment for our clients. You would be a critical part of our treatment team!
Our Holistic Approach
Body: Drug and alcohol abuse takes a heavy toll on the body. While residents participate in our program, they have an opportunity to re-evaluate their physical health and well-being in the safety of a clean and sober environment. Our location in the redwood forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains is an integral part of our resident's physical and emotional healing. While surrounded by expansive lawns and 25 acres of forest, they can enjoy yoga, a ropes course, swimming, volleyball, basketball, tennis, a gym and other amenities.
Mind: Physical dependence is just one facet of addiction. Once the physical dependence on drugs has been addressed, our resident's are ready to begin to heal emotionally and psychologically with a clear mind. Their days in our program are filled with opportunities to explore the reasons underlying the substance abuse and learn new coping skills through counseling, education, 12-Step work and other therapies.
Spirit: It isn't just drugs that wear a person down, but also the emotional pain that breaks the spirit. But the human spirit is resilient and can rebound given time and support. Through our addiction program's 12-Step meetings and group counseling, our residents gain the support of a network of individuals in recovery who understand the pain addiction brings. This sense of fellowship reminds them that they are not alone, and opens the door to a new outlook on life.
