Finding a Job While in Recovery
Finding a job while in Recovery from addiction and mental illness is not easy.
Employers can be concerned by: Felony Drug Convictions, Loss of License, Lack of Experience and Probation. TLCR can lead you to a work situation with an employer who appreciates the efforts you’re making.
Many of us started our recovery without a GED. TLCR can help you enroll in GED training programs, and you may be able to get GED testing for free. Many of us never thought going to college was possible, but we were wrong. If you decide to join those of us in college, you might qualify for a PELL grant to pay for your school, even with a drug conviction. TLCR can guide you from GED to college.
We know how hard and intimidating it can be to get the computer practice and skills you need. TLCR has on-site computers you can use to learn and practice new skills at your own pace and with assistance from the TLCR support staff.
Budgeting & Banking
Many of us had trouble saving money until we learned to create a budget. TLCR’s support team will help you make your own budget and help you open up your own checking and savings accounts. Did you have problems with “bad” checks in the past? TLCR will connect you with banks that support TLCR Members who are committed to recovery.
You’re going to make it. It’s going to be ALL RIGHT!
