Tell us about your experience in your internship:
I learned so much through working with intakes for an in-patient rehabilitation program. I learned about the realities of addiction's influence over (and how it is influenced by) medical, psychological, legal, and life circumstances. I talked to many people on the phone interested in joining the program which was impactful to witness the amount of lives in need. I got to be participants first point of contact and see their development over time at Harvest Farm. I got to know the people in the program really well and it was inspiring to see people so willing to improve themselves and their lives.
