Why Did You Choose Northstar Behavioral Health?
After working in a coed outpatient treatment facility for 4 years, I decided that I wanted to challenge myself by working in different type of treatment facility. Northstar gives me the opportunity to work with an all male client group that are in treatment for 90 days. All male groups have a different set of dynamics than coed groups, and these dynamics allow for authenticity to flourish within and between the clients. Northstar’s 90 day program also allows me the opportunity to work with clients for an extended period of time, and this additional time is essential when individuals are learning and developing new skills that help them build a new life that is filled with meaning and purpose.
