Each year at Rainbow Treatment Center hundreds of Tribal members successfully complete substance abuse treatment. Our clients attend hundreds of hours of counseling, work hard to change their lifestyles, and go on to accomplish great things.
One of the things many of our clients want to do is gain work skills that will help them provide for themselves and their loved ones.
The Working to Wellness Employment Program is for clients who have completed most or all of their treatment to obtain jobs at Tribal, Federal, or Private Companies and Rainbow Treatment Center will pay for the salaries of the participants; all of their taxes, benefits, and personnel policies will be the same as if he/she is a part-time employee of the White Mountain Apache Tribe.
This person will work at the place of employment of their own choosing and accepted at the discretion of the employer; he/she will also be subject to any special rules or regulations the company/ agency or entity may have.
Program participants will be drug tested at Rainbow Treatment Center on a weekly basis.
Program participants will also participate in four hours of substance abuse and vocational rehabilitation counseling at Rainbow Treatment Center each week and will participate in individual counseling as needed.
This is an achievement. Research shows that getting a job is one of the most important factors in helping people remain sober.
