Been a long time since my last visit/interaction here. Thanks to Dallas for helping me out with my defunct email issue.
I am looking to resume school in the spring of 2010; the emphasis being behavioural health, ie. Alcohol and Addiction work. Seems natural that with nearly 25 years in service to AA I should follow my heart and go with the bulk of my experience (it only took me forever to figure that out).
I am looking to connect with others in the field or currently seeking education in the field. I know what it's like at 'street level' but not too familiar with the 'professional' side. I'm in PA and there are definite requirements for 'councelors' here (a HS Diploma and some experience are not enough to gain an effective position here).
Any help or direction - including D&A specific Scholarship information - would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time!
