It's funny how my paradigm shifted. And in relationship to the debate, PT employment did work best when there was DC to factor in. Now, I will be seeing MORE of my family.
I will be a staff assistant in a substance abuse clinic. A lot of my work will be clerical, but I will also have to have training in crisis intervention. It is a day program, not residential. The director really believes in this program, and the success rate is about at 33%. If you knew the area I lived in, and how prevelant drug use is, you would understand my happiness at actually being part of the solution. I will be working with 4 counselors on hand. It's just a small building in the woods, with all the modern conveniences. The location is for privacy reasons. They provide all the necessary training, and the benefits are excellent. They will also pay for any schooling that would enhance my work performance.
The hours are 7:30-4. Monday through Friday. And the pay is almost DOUBLE. The best part is the drive is less than 10 miles! YEAH! I'll be home by 4:15 every day.
This is something I never saw myself doing, but now that I have the chance, I'm really excited about it.
Wish me luck! :O)
