Ohlhoff Recovery Programs is proud to serve as a practicum and internship training site to students in psychology and counseling graduate programs throughout the Bay Area. We accept students pursuing Psy.D., Ph.D., MFT degrees, Master’s degrees in Rehabilitation Counseling, CAADAC, or other drug and alcohol counseling certifications who wish to learn about dual diagnosis, the spiritual basis of recovery, the social model of reintegration into the community, and multi-cultural issues. Ohlhoff Recovery Programs serves a diverse client population with differing levels of treatment needs. We provide students a specialized training program within a variety of treatment components. These include our 6-month residential programs for working men, our 30-day primary residential program for adults, and our intensive outpatient treatment programs for adults and adolescents. In addition, we work closely with the Wellness Centers at a number of high schools in San Francisco.

Students will have the opportunity to work closely with staff in an interdisciplinary treatment setting, where they will attend weekly treatment team meetings. They will receive training on the interaction between substance use and mental health issues, information on psychiatric treatment of dual disorders, and the 12-Step approach to treatment of substance abuse. Qualifying students will have the ability to administer and interpret psychological test batteries in many of our components.

Please submit a CV/resume, a letter of intent, and three letters of recommendation to Elissa Stevens at

CVs and resumes are accepted from students from December 15th through March 1st.

The practicum/internship begins in July and ends in June. Students spend twenty hours per week at their site providing individual, group, and family counseling. Students receive one hour per week of individual supervision by a licensed psychologist, two hours per week of group supervision and weekly didactic trainings in a variety of chemical dependency and mental health issues.
