Health Care Hiring Premieres New Substance Abuse Rehab Directory
Health Care Hiring announced today the launch of a new alcoholism and drug abuse treatment directory, including over 19,000 alcohol and drug abuse treatment centers, addiction treatment programs detox and rehabilitation programs.
Substance abuse treatment and diagnosis is a $3 billion per year industry in the U.S., and job opportunities for counselors, psychiatric technicians and other health professionals are growing much faster than the national average. Substance abuse treatment centers employ counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and psychiatric technicians, as well as nurses and nurses' aides, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants plus administrative and clerical staff.
Alcohol and drug abuse programs vary widely. Some are inpatient residential treatment centers, while others are day or outpatient services. Offerings may include personal assessments for alcohol/drug abuse, alcohol and drug education and referral programs, training on alcohol and other drug issues, education on topics such as substance abuse, HIV/AIDS prevention, sexual assault and healthy eating and living, and demonstrating healthy alternatives to alcohol abuse. Methods and approach also vary, and while the majority are still based on the 12 step model pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous, a growing number of rehabilitation centers now focus on models based on research and individual treatment.
In addition to a nationwide healthcare job board, Health Care Hiring provides a local city search directory of health providers so that jobseekers may find employment close to home. Coconut Island Software, Inc., the parent company of Health Care Hiring, also publishes the Drug and Alcohol Rehab Directory at www.drug-rehab-
