“The benefits of the internship program to our agency and to our clients were clear from the start. We did not expect the tremendous impact the experience has had on the students. Many interns arrive with preconceived ideas about people with addictions. They think of them as homeless people who sleep under bridges. By the end of their internships, they realize that addiction crosses all barriers of age, race and socioeconomic conditions. They come to see the patients in our women-only residential program as people who look like their mothers, sisters and best friends.”
