People Incorporated is a nonprofit organization that serves people with mental illness in the Minneapolis and Saint Paul metro area. The Huss Center for Recovery is an innovative treatment program for adult men and women with co-occurring chemical dependency issues and mental illness. The program offers a full spectrum of services including inpatient, intensive outpatient, continuing care and concerned persons group. Our person-centered treatment services provide an integrated, interdisciplinary approach that links psychological, biological, and social factors to assist people in the process of recovery.
We are offering an INTERNSHIP to students enrolled in Master's degree programs that are focused on dual licensure in Alcohol and Drug Counseling and another area of mental health counseling like social work, counseling psychology, integrated behavioral health, etc. This is an unpaid internship that involves a collaboration between the school, the student and the supervisor at Huss.
Internship opportunities are available at Huss Center for Recovery (Residential and Outpatient), Hewitt Women's Program (Residential and Outpatient) and new IOP programs scheduled to open this Spring.
The primary objective of the internship is to observe and then practice the twelve core functional skills required of an Alcohol and Drug Counselor and to observe and then practice the core responsibilities for mental health practitioners. Some experiences will include:

Learning how to prepare reports and documentation for reimbursement of services
Observing and conducting diagnostic assessments, learning differential diagnostic skills
