Under the best of circumstances, entering the job workforce can be an intimidating endeavor.  For those individuals in early recovery from substance use disorder (SUD), it can be overwhelming. In addition to coping with the challenges of maintaining early sobriety, these individuals are faced with securing a satisfying job that pays a living wage and can support their recovery efforts. They have most likely been out of the workforce for an extended period and might have a criminal record or are facing legal issues that create a barrier to finding gainful employment. Further, finding suitable affordable housing and establishing addiction recovery support services are critical to successfully maintaining employment.

At Ascension Recovery Services (Ascension), we are experienced in the development of programs to integrate these individuals back into society and the job market through a financially sustainable job training and workforce reintegration program specific to SUD. Our expertise includes providing job training and placement opportunities, securing safe and affordable housing options when needed, and connecting individuals with wrap around peer support services. Ascension believes those in recovery deserve the support necessary for a seamless and successful transition back into their communities, and we are here to help.

Reintegrate Appalachia is here to help. This program takes recovering addicts, gives them jobs and helps them build a community to help them through the journey.
