SouthLight Intern Testimonials

“I have learned the most from our clients. They have allowed me to be a part of their treatment journey, which has been a massive privilege. I was nervous coming in to CST since doing clinical work was all brand new to me, but I have become so much more confident in my clinical skills and supporting our clients as they grow and take steps toward a better future. This internship brings me so much joy and I know I am right where I need to be.” —Abby

The amount of time and attention dedicated to interns is exceptional. I am forever grateful for the experience and the support received from the IOP program and SouthLight in general.”

“I started at SouthLight as an OTP counseling intern working toward my Masters in social work and upon graduation, I was immediately hired as an OTP counselor. At a time when I wasn’t sure where my place in the world would be, SouthLight showed me a world of opportunity for myself by exposing me to the world of opportunity we create for the clients we serve.”

– Jacki

“Working at the Opioid Treatment program at SouthLight means the world to me. Being able to work with people from my community and help them find that beacon of light inside themselves that says ‘I am strong enough to keep going’ is the exact reason I got into the social work field.”
