Substance use disorders affect a staggering number of individuals and families. Recovery is an ongoing process of growth, self-change, regaining self-confidence and nurturing a positive outlook on life. A key component in people’s ability to reclaim their lives and move forward is regular employment.
RecoveryWorks is a non-profit program at Massachusetts General Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School. We are dedicated to connecting individuals who have substance use disorders with employment opportunities and matching their level of experience and skill sets.
RecoveryWorks offers its participants career advice and job search coaching; continued clinical support during the job search and initial employment; ongoing on-the-job mentorship; assistance with legal issues; and coordination among involved agencies, including healthcare providers.
