I worked for a rehabilitation center for adults and adolescents. To say the least I quit because of the inconsistent, rude, overbearing coworkers I had to deal with daily. This is very hard. People see them as a lost cause, they need to be heard without being violent, they are humans too. Speak up as well, say something to the staff, be their voice.

You have to find that one who really cares, then you make a big ass deal about it!! I'm talking threatening lawsuits!! Write a letter in crayon to the director, crayon means business lol. Seriously though, just do what you can to help the ones around you while you're there....

Yes! Our mental health facilities are full to capacity, and speaking in general, the people being hired for these addiction rehabs are under qualified, understaffed and overworked. They feel overworked and overwhelmed by “the powers that be” decision makers, which leads to a thorough breakdown of moral and compassion for clients and co-workers alike. For many, rehab is a temporary interruption in their lives and oftentimes a decision that they didn’t get to make, and that’s a minimal mindset for any success whatsoever. Every employee has a job to do, and when ONE isn’t pulling their own weight, the dominoes will soon fall, and the relevance of client/ rehab facility take the real hit. Those who are the most vulnerable and unable to straighten their lives out on their own are dismissed and little “treatment”, if any, ever leaves the building. This is what our society has become and I’m sorry to say that there’s little relief in sight. The need for legitimate mental health care and services/long term facilities, whether it be drugs or biology is at an ALL TIME HIGH, and continues climbing at an accelerated rate. It’s crippled us, family by family, and destroyed millions and millions of lives, yet, here we are. Nothing changes if nothing changes.

I’d like to know where all the so called help is for the people who have struggled with addiction and have made some horrible choices in our lives but have turned our lives around and now I can’t seem to get any assistance with jobs or anything else that matters in a productive and fulfilling life idk it’s disappointing for me because I’ve worked so hard a being better than I was the day before and still living and paying for my mistakes I’ve made which I get it but yes it’s very hard to stay the course if you don’t have a clue how it’s going to work out for you

Get with people who care a lot. You see them and probably don’t want to or can’t talk to them. This is your life.

People suffering from addiction are difficult to deal with because they know what to say to get what they need. It has been proven that "tough love" is one of the best approaches and not give them anything that they can use to get their drug of choice. The fact is you can't help them unless they want to help themselves and they have to hit rock bottom before they will do anything. Unfortunately for some that is death.

Where I live, I go to a great place for my addiction I have been clean for 6 months now. They are like family. This place is overrun with drugs. It's bad because of the environment. No jobs that pay. The problem is we don't get any financial help. I was signed up for the Rent Relief. That was in 2020, they just gave me the run around. And was supposed to paid 3 months out of 24, well they haven't paid it, Yet. I am behind. They turned my lights off today, and last month they did the same thing. I am on disability, and it is a shame that people have to beg for help. When I have researched that help is out there. I guess it's the area. So, here I am in the dark, with a 425 $ light bill I got to pay before they will turn it on. My check I get is an embarrassment. What am I supposed to do???
