HIS WAY RECOVERY CENTER
RESIDENT MANAGER INTERN POSITION

ABOUT HIS WAY

His Way is a residential recovery program for men struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. The His Way facility consists of 3 buildings sitting on almost 5 acres in a peaceful setting just outside Huntsville, Alabama. We have a capacity for up to 38 residents, and are usually filled with a significant waiting list. Our recovery program is 6 months long (some residents opt to stay a second 6 months), and includes proven recovery materials and classes, spiritual counseling, life skills coaching, and professional development and assistance.

INTERNSHIP OVERVIEW

Resident Manager Interns will work (and live) alongside the His Way staff and residents. Interns will be immersed into the family atmosphere of our program, and will receive hands-on training in Christ-centered recovery. Interns will have the opportunity to gain experience in all areas of our ministry and mission by:

● Becoming familiar with the core material/curriculum of the His Way recovery program.
● Participating and leading regular Bible classes and recovery classes.
● Personally serving and ministering to His Way residents.
● Learning the operational and logistical challenges required to operate a residential recovery facility.

This experience and training is valuable for anyone seeking to develop their career in youth ministry, campus ministry, substance abuse counseling, or addiction recovery programs.
