The participants receive hands-on machinist training, an $8 per hour salary upon the completion of the program, peer counseling to support emotional development, and soft-skills education that prepares them to successfully re-enter the workforce.


“RecoveryWorks provides a structured pathway for workforce re-entry. Participants must be affected by the opioid epidemic in some way, either in recovery themselves or dealing with or having dealt with family or friends struggling with substance use disorder.” - Carol Howerton, RCBI senior strategic advisor for workforce development
