Residents enrolled in a CRCI program will have the chance to seek and follow through on many opportunities that may have otherwise been unavailable to them. CRCI is currently offering several educational and professional redevelopment programs to help residents exceed beyond their most basic expectation of “getting clean.” We are offering a GED achievement program in partnership with the Brunswick Literacy Council, where residents may graduate with a full GED. We are also partnering with Brunswick Community College to provide college-level certification courses for various types of professional and trade skills.

Beyond education, CRCI has initiated a Workforce Redevelopment Program. The purpose of the Workforce Redevelopment Program (WRP) is to better assist each resident in the search of meaningful employment after satisfactorily completing the treatment curriculum. It is the goal of CRCI to produce opportunities in the residential treatment setting that will translate into lived experience, training hours and resume items for future employment. These opportunities will help to alleviate the unattractive gap that recovery participants incur from their months in residential treatment. This process will also provide certain residents recommendation letters from their immediate supervisors that can be utilized in the next employment opportunity.

The Workforce Redevelopment Program (WRP) works with 4 primary trade service industries.

  1. Catering
  2. Landscaping & Pressure Washing
  3. Commercial Cleaning
  4. Administration Assistance & Leadership Excellence

After

Like many Recovery Centers, after successful completion of the program, the opportunity to participate in CRCI’s Internship program may be available for select individuals. Interns continue to learn and grow in their relationship with Christ, and they continue to work the 12 steps with a sponsor. During this time, interns engage with residents as they offer guidance and experience while on the road to their own personal recovery.

The goal of the internship program is to enable residents who have excelled in the CRCI program (and in their spiritual growth) to remain as a part of the ministry. This position will enable them to give back to the program and to give other residents what they have freely received. They will help lead other residents to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and mentor to the newer residents in their journey to find peace, hope, and joy through a closer relationship with an almighty God. 

During the internship program CRCI strives to give back to interns as much as resources will allow. At no cost CRCI offers additional educational opportunities including CPSS (Certified Peer Support Specialist) curriculum and CADC (Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor) curriculum. After successfully completing a course, interns are allowed the opportunity to complete their required training hours internally. It is also CRCI’s mission to help interns meet their financial and legal responsibilities by giving them a salary or other financial aid, and by helping them secure their driver’s license if applicable. CRCI wants to ease the pressure of each intern’s past while they are in the process of building their new future.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
