Internship Opportunities

Substance Abuse Internship  

For students nearing completion of their educational requirements for their addiction program, House of Hope offers a wonderfully broad experience in all 12 Core Functions. Interns will work within our 3 residential programs that serve individuals who have chemical dependency and mental health issues. Intensive Outpatient Program, Substance Abuse Assessments, and our Equine Therapy Program are provided as part of your educational experience. Our diverse programs, and overwhelming support provide a unique experience and an outstanding substance abuse internship. 

Our goal is to offer interns a holistic experience that completely prepares them to be a primary counselor. Addiction interns get exposure to all of the 12 Core Functions by working closely with a licensed Primary Counselor as well as receiving individual supervision with the Clinical Supervisor. Interns will learn to navigate various funding systems including insurance companies and counties, as well as understanding and utilizing resources available to our clients. Interns will also collaborate with probation officers, social workers, and therapists facilitating clients’ treatment plans. As interns’ skills develop, they will be given a small group of clients from the beginning of treatment to graduation. This allows interns the valuable opportunity to practice the skills they have learned while receiving necessary clinical and emotional support that prepares them for a successful career as a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor.  

 

We accept applications throughout the entire year on an ongoing basis.
