Review for Above and Beyond Family Recovery Center, Chicago, IL, USA
Above and Beyond a place where not only the patients that we serve are allowed to change their lives, but so do the staff. I come in to work everyday and i see miracles, people who once were degenerates to the rest of the world, have now become respectable well spoken members of a family. I work primarily in the administration department which is awesome because i am learning how to become a manager as well as a clinician which is useful since i want to be a clinical director of a substance abuse center one day. My career has just started and thats all because of the chance that Above and Beyond granted me 6 short months ago. Today i am a Certified Associate Addictions Professional, as well as a certified SMART recovery facilitator. Honestly a year ago i wouldn't have even believed someone if they told me this is where i would be now. Every single coworker i have is amazing, the clinical director is one of the most down to earth humble people i have ever met and i consider him a friend. It hasn't been easy but with the guidance of my coworkers, i am now on the path i knew i could be on.
I don't know how to put my experience so far into words because i'm in shock every single day that i am living this life, but i want everyone to know that i wont ever look back now and i owe a lot of what i know and will know to everyone who has made such a big impact on me at work. I still cant believe that i'm a part of something so amazing and so big. Gosh i love my life today.
