“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.”

– Jackie

“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.”
