I've been in & out of food service for twenty years now, with a brief stint teaching high-school English. Currently I work at a super-ritzy resort in the N. Carolina mountains putting the ॐ in omelettes, and I write poetry during my off time. No points for guessing which gig pays.
If unable to dance, I'll crawl.

I work in the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant along with Homer Simpson's identical twin. I also am a Marine Biologist in my spare time.

Actually I'm just a boring tax accountant working for a small family office in New York City - the the nuclear scientist just sounded much cooler

I'm at work right now. I'm an admissions counselor at an addiction treatment center. I take calls coming in on a crisis hotline from alcoholics and drug addicts and their family members and direct them to appropriate treatment centers. This is an entry-level job as I am just starting a new career in this field. I will be taking an exam this December to get a state certification as an addiction counselor. My goal is to work as a therapist at a treatment center.

This is a cool job for the time being. Not only do I get to help people with the same problems that I've had myself in the past, but in between calls I can listen to music, read books, check out this forum, etc. Plus, I work with a bunch of cool people. Quite a few of us here are Deadheads and Wharf Rats.


It's good you have a background to work from. See all that past parites paid off. Really, people can see through the bullshit when someone hasn't been through it before. Kudos to you for making a difference!

^^^^tony is right...when i was a kid about 14 or 15 i was in an outpatient clinic because of a scrape with local law enforcement involving buds...my counselor was this dude who never used drugs or anything and he was basically instructing me out of textbooks it was odd i told him he had the problem...i spent some time in an inpatient clinic later in my senior year and it was the same situation where the counselors weren't recovering addicts in fact i think some used...it was really negative i couldn't get onto that level with someone who had no clue of what the hell i was experiencing or going through

i currently have a friend living in huntington beach CA working as a rehab counselor and he is a recovering dope addict
