I had the wonderful privilege of working as an intern for Breakthrough Recovery Outreach while earning my Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. My experience with the clients and staff at BRO was unlike any other experience I have ever had. Each therapist and staff member at BRO seemed to truly care about the well-being and safety of the clients. I felt right at home at BRO from the moment I started my internship. The staff members are warm and friendly and the therapists are very involved with the clients. The clients also seemed as if they felt they were among friends during their recovery process. Breakthrough offers a wide variety of programs and learning opportunities to the clients and the staff. The programs at BRO give clients the chance to learn skills that will help them rebuild their lives. As an intern, I learned techniques from BRO’s different programs that I will carry with me for the rest of my personal life and professional career as a counselor. One of the main assets of BRO is that the director, Chris Jacobs, exhibits a great amount of care and concern for the mental and physical health of each client and staff member. He voices concern regularly for the well-being of staff members. His door is open for staff to voice concerns and receive help with working with clients. He also takes extra measures to get to know the clients and their families on a personal level. Each client is handled as an individual with a unique lifestyle and personality. I could tell from working with Mr. Jacobs that he really has a heart and a calling for helping others. The staff members share in the same love for people. I would highly recommend BRO for any individual or family that is in need of recovery services. I had an absolutely wonderful experience and I would trust Breakthrough with the care of my own loved one for recovery help.
