Who will my supervisor be?

Supervision is one of the most integral components of a successful internship experience.   The clinical supervisor at New Hope Recovery Center is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in addition to being a Certified Advanced Alcohol and other Drug Counselor (CAADC) and a Registered Dual Disorder Professional (RDDP).  You will be provided direct weekly 1:1 supervision with the Clinical Supervisor during your time at New Hope in order to receive the best possible clinical experience.
