Steady employment and financial security are at the CORE of addiction recovery.

Marshall Health provides the resources and support necessary to help individuals in recovery re-enter the workforce through our Creating Opportunities for Recovery Employment (CORE) initiative. CORE’s goal is to create a ready workforce within its 12-county region of southwestern West Virginia. 

CORE helps individuals focus on a career path, rather than a job. Our employment specialists provide:

  • a career readiness assessment
  • job search/interview/resume/letter writing advice
  • job training and job placement assistance
  • educational placement


CORE is made possible, in part, through generous support from the Appalachian Regional Commission and Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.
