Career Guidance

Many of the women who enroll in a treatment program have the same concern: What happens next? For those in need of employment, Rising Roads offers career guidance services.

Our comprehensive personality and interest testing help women choose the right “get well” job to move forward after returning home. Through these positions, clients take a small step back into the working world, either part-time or full-time. We have had women work at coffee shops, farms, restaurants, daycares, schools, boutiques, and doctors’ offices. Our team guides clients through the process of finding and obtaining gainful employment.
