Are you considering entering rehab treatment? If so, then maybe you wonder about the addiction treatment staff. For example, will you like them? Are they supportive and friendly? Also, what kind of positions do they fill, and how will they impact your recovery?

Of course, all of these questions are entirely natural. Of course, you want to know who you will surround yourself with, as you start this highly important journey. Feel free to ask your intake counselor as many questions as you want as you start talking to a rehab center about your own treatment.

What Kind of Addiction Treatment Staff Work in Rehabs?

Rehab treatment facilities employ many people in a variety of roles. Of course, as with any organization, these staff work at multiple levels with administrative, support, supervisory, executive, and professional roles. You see some of these addiction treatment staff during your treatment, while others do not work in view of clients. Still, they all work in jobs designed to ensure you get the best possible care.

Some residential programs also employ residence managers and housekeepers. Residence managers typically ensure day-to-day living is respectful, healthy, clean, and according to the rehab’s guidelines.

Dual diagnosis treatment centers treat both mental health problems and addiction. So this means addiction treatment staff must include one or more psychiatrists. Other mental health and addiction rehab personnel offering direct treatment include licensed therapists, certified counselors, and other support personnel. Some staff members prepare meals, others dispense medications, and some complete paperwork as well as file for insurance payments and accept telephone calls.

Whichever addiction treatment staff you encounter during your rehab stay, the quality of your relationship with them is crucial. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that these relationships influence your overall success in recovery. That is a long term effect of people in your life for a short period of time. This is why rehab centers screen their candidates carefully before hiring them.

Staff Experience Is Important

Your chosen rehab center likely employs people with years of experience. Some have experience that comes from education and work in their field. Meanwhile, others experienced addiction at some point in their own lives and structured their new life by choosing to work in treatment. However they gain their experience, their background matters.

When you review your chosen rehab’s website or printed materials, you can find some information about their addiction treatment staff. You can review or ask about their credentials to gain a better understanding of the quality of treatment provided at that facility.

For example, our rehab treatment employees include:

  • Licensed therapists
  • Certified counselors
  • Specialized therapists
  • Holistic treatment providers
  • Psychiatrists
  • Medical doctors
  • Nurses
