I was excited to get started with work and find a job, but I was afraid of what other people and employers would think about me. I had a record, and all these various different stigmas and obstacles I thought I'd have to face, but RCA took a gamble with me. I don't see myself working anywhere else but Recovery Centers of America.
Alumni Relations Coordinator, RCA at Bracebridge Hall
Getting back to work, there was a real sense of accomplishment because I had been pretty much out of the workforce due to my addiction...but the staff, the facility at RCA has been wonderful, I'm so grateful for being part of the RCA family and being able to do the work that I do.
The job search process was terrifying. I was pretty nervous...I had a criminal record and no license. The way I saw it, I had very few options, so I was thrilled to be hired by RCA. I remember not knowing what to expect, but hearing a lot of great things about RCA's vision...I felt very connected with a good culture of people. RCA has delivered on its promises for me, so I'd recommend it to anyone.
