Anyone who’s started over after rehab knows that there is an awful lot to get done.
You’ve got to avoid people who are bad for your recovery, work on your existing relationships, practice the new skills you learned at rehab, attempt to eat right and exercise —and maybe even find a new job.
At the same time, you also have to try and avoid getting overwhelmed and stressed out.
Life is absolutely better than before, but it’s not easy.
Luckily, Dallas has the resources and opportunities you need to embrace and enjoy life.
Jobs for Recovering Addicts in Dallas
Finding a job is challenging. But it’s even more challenging if your addiction resulted in a criminal record.
The good news is that there are people who have recognized that difficulty and taken action. Check out America In Recovery and the National Hire Network—two non-profits dedicated to helping find jobs for recovering addicts and those with criminal pasts.
