Morehead recovery and addiction specialists host job fair for people of varying experience


Behavior health specialists are bringing employment opportunities to Morehead. Officials said the Mountain Comprehensive Care Center’s ReVived Recovery and Essence Recovery are hosting a job fair Tuesday.

The event will be held at the MCCC’s Morehead facility from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jason Jones, Addictions Clinical Coordinator for MCCC, said careers in behavioral health are a good way for those who have been in recovery to give back.

“A lot of people who are usually in recovery, a lot of times they have a heart that wants to help. I find that a lot of people want to come back and give back what they’ve been freely given. And they’ve found a solution to their problems so they’re usually a very giving bunch of individuals,” said Jones.

MCCC will be hiring individuals for a variety of positions that have varying levels of education requirements, from GEDs to graduate degrees. Jones said careers in recovery are a calling, not just a job.

“Revive Recovery, for a lot of people here and working in substance abuse and mental health, it becomes more of a passion and more of a mission than it does a job. A lot of people come into work, and they don’t even feel like they’ve gone to work. It usually attracts a lot of hearts that just want to help and it’s a beautiful thing to watch people heal,” said Jones.

Jones said several positions are hiring on-site, including Peer Support Specialists, Community Support Associates, and Behavioral Health Professionals. Officials said attendees should bring a driver’s license, social security card, resume, highest level diploma, and a voided check in case they’re offered a job on-site.

A full list of the open positions and required documents attendees should bring can be found on the MCCC Facebook page.
