    I have been working at Center for Discovery full-time (more than 3 years)


    I've worked at several behavioral health companies and CFD is the best in terms of its philosophy. Supportive ambitious leadership, major growth opportunities, 401K, awesome coworkers. no matter your position you have opportunities for your voice to be heard and give feedback


    Of course working in mental health treatment especially residential can be challenging but that's anywhere; low pay for counselors but if you're getting your hours then it's not a big deal. benefits got better this year but still have a ways to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make staff appreciation a priority-it has gone a long way. let go of the employees that have no right being there (or in the mental health field at all); but to be fair it seems like with the size of this company its running pretty well; Dr. Brown visits each facility, has an open door policy and if you've ever heard him talk is clearly a very intelligent and humble guy.

    Found job posting on and was recommended by a friend. Set up interview via email. Interviewed with the facility administrator and program director. They asked me about my past experience and my career goals for the future. They told me they would let me know by Friday (interview was on Monday). I was called on Tuesday and was offered the position.
