Finding your purpose in life is critical to your recovery
Our job at Right Path is to reassure residents that they can have ambitions and that they can still live their dream. You have to start small. Right Path provides educational and job support by approaching each person as an individual to assist them in writing a resume or refining a college application. After addiction, we believe that every person will achieve success if they don't let their disease rush them. Addiction is always in a hurry, but our coaches can point to the benefits and pit-falls of rushing into too much work or school. Coaches can help you slow down and allow for each step of the recovery process to take hold. Then, residents can build and expand on their own meaningful successes.
We offer support so you can study or obtain a job
Our coaches help you evaluate your study habits, learn to use tutors, help you become a life-long learner and researcher, and manage your time while not losing sight of your priorities-to stay clean and sober. Perhaps the most important thing a coaches does is give you the courage to be yourself and follow your dream.
We can also help our residents gain employment part or full-time. We have a broad range of corporations both large and small in this area and can help a resident find the right fit. For those residents who are eager to work right away, there are many part-time opportunities for them and their coach will be there for them to help support them in finding the right job while always keeping their recovery in first place.
We can assist you in volunteering
If you are not working, volunteer work is important for your recovery. The Corporation for National and Community Service says that, "volunteering improves psychological and physical health." Volunteers feel a sense of purpose while developing networks that, in turn, can distract or directly support them when stressed. Work of any kind is empowering.
