The Healthy House Internship Program is located in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It introduces students in the mental health or women’s health fields of study to the important role that Level III recovery homes on the Social model of recovery houses play in ensuring a productive life for women in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Interns gain practical experience through projects, special assignments, or research that support community-based programming, policies and best practices in the prevention and treatment of addiction and mental illness.
Students selected as Healthy House interns will use their specific skills and knowledge while implementing hands-on, the principles covered during their education. At Healthy House, each intern will be able to work under the guidance of the Healthy House manager and a Board member with expertise in the field of interest, and all attempts will be made to match their course of study and field of interest to projects and special assignments.
