Where can I find a job once I leave rehab?

Getting a job once you leave rehab can be stressful. I take a meeting into a treatment center once a week and at least one person shares about it every time. Once we get clean and sober, we want to get back to being productive as soon as possible. It’s also a matter of financial insecurity: e.g  “How will I pay the rent at my sober house without a job?” The good news is, there are resources available for you to find a job once you leave rehab.

Some of the best suggestions on where to find a job once you leave rehab can come from your sober house manager or your roommates. Remember, these places make a business out of housing people right out of rehab, so they can be a great source of knowledge when it comes to places you can apply. They know the places that residents in the past have worked. They know where residents have gotten jobs recently. They also may know which places don’t require a lot of experience or that are okay with hiring people in recovery. This can be very valuable information.
