Leah Koski is a counselor trainee at Serenity Lane, a treatment center for alcoholism and drug abuse in Oregon. "This internship program is very rigorous. I have to do a lot of different tasks involving the patients. I have to drive them to their AA/NA meetings, lead them through their orientation and group work, and have classroom sessions where we learn different counseling techniques and have a variety of lectures. I'm learning something new everyday either about myself or the drug and alcohol world. At the completion of this program I will have enough hours to become certified and intend to the test to get my CADC I. With that under my belt, I will hopefully be able to get into grad school for social work."
