Dear Ms. Theodora German,
I am very interested in the AODA Counselor position at CRC Health Group.
I have a real desire to help others learn how to live alcohol and drug free. I have personal experience helping a loved one battling addiction and this gave me the motivation to help others dealing with drug related issues. I acquired a bachelor’s degree in social work and became state certified. Over the last two years, I have worked as a volunteer at the health department where I assisted professional counselors and gained valuable hands-on experience.
I have the ability to provide individual or group counseling sessions that help educate communities about alcohol and drugs, peer pressure and the way it affects the individual along with their families and friends. My experience and training also includes helping to diagnose the source of the problem and creating a treatment plan that is suited for the individual. I can also make referrals when necessary.
I have the training and skills to provide support for individuals and their families while maintaining complete confidentiality. I can also provide suggestions and resources that can help patients take steps to a healthy, drug free lifestyle. I also have the training needed to deal with crisis situations.
I have excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to create a friendly environment where individuals feel comfortable talking about their situation. I am professional and I always adhere to high ethical standards.
You can contact me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555 and I hope to meet with you soon to discuss this position in person.
