Review for Above and Beyond Family Recovery Center, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I spent my practicum here and learned about how compassion, competence, and innovative healing can have more of an impact on people with addictions than all the twelve step meetings in the world! It has been an eye-opener and I feel like my vision for my career path is now a lot clearer than it was when I arrived. The teamwork here is incredible and you learn to really rely on those around you. I had never had an opportunity to really experience that before. The high level of ability that the permanent staff has is mind-boggling. The Executive Director is behind the scenes inventing all of this stuff I guess, but the way it comes out is very holistic and natural. Nothing is forced here and nobody drops through the cracks. I love this place!

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field
