Residents enrolled in the BCRC program will have the chance to seek and follow through on many opportunities that may have otherwise been unavailable to them. BCRC is currently offering several educational and professional redevelopment programs to help residents exceed beyond their most basic expectation of "getting clean." We are offerina GED achievement program in partnership with the Brunswick Literacy Council, where residents may graduate with a full H.S. Equivalency or 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, BCRC 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 BCRC 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.
- Landscaping & Pressure Washing
- Commercial Cleaning
- Administration Assistance
Like many Recovery Centers, after successful completion of the program, the opportunity to be invited onto the BCRC Intern Staff may available for select individuals.
You will continue to learn and grow in your relationship with Christ as well as continue on to work the 12 steps with a sponsor.
During this time you will be engaging with other men as you offer your guidance and experience while on the road to recovery.
The goal of the intern staff program is to enable residents who have excelled in BCRCs program (and in their spiritual growth) to remain on the campus for extended periods of time. This 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 to mentor the newer residents in their journey to find peace, hope, and joy through a closer relationship with an almighty God.
Realizing that some qualified residents, who may otherwise be able to continue on as BCRC staff, may not be able to because of financial and legal situations. It is the goal of BCRC senior staff to help some residents meet their financial and legal responsibilities by giving them a salary or other financial aid.
The goal of BCRC should not be only to help residents and staff members while in the program but to assist them as they depart in continuing their spiritual journey. BCRC should help all staff members in securing their driver’s license, save money to go to a halfway house, pay required legal fees, and to prepare them for their next step after leaving BCRC. These things should be determining factors in salary consideration, financial aid, and also determining whether staff will be allowed to work off-campus.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
