Developing and Using a Vocational Training and Education Resource Manual.
Whittington, Marna C.
In addition to eliminating illicit drug use, rehabilitation programs must help clients find both a meaningful way to spend the time that was formerly spent hustling money for drugs and a legitimate way to earn the money that was formerly provided by hustling. One solution to both these problems is to help ex-addicts make the transition to full-time, unsubsidized employment that offers potential upward mobility in earning power. This guide focuses on helping ex-addicts acquire a viable skill. It does this by helping drug rehabilitation and program staff efficiently locate and utilize training and educational programs in the surrounding community. The end product is a Vocational Training and Education Resource Manual that is up to date for a given area. Chapters show staff how to develop an easy-to-use reference manual; locate training programs in the appropriate area; compare the merits of all available programs; and refer the clients to the specific programs most advantageous for them.
