    Former Employee - Billing/Payroll/Human Resources Assistant in Boise, ID

    I worked at Center For Behavioral Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you like to work, you're in the right place! My desk was constantly full but I rarely felt overwhelmed because the work was cycle based.

    Cons

    Local corporate management needs more business-based training. While they hit the nail on the head with a lot of facets, micro-management is not motivating.

  2. Terrible entry level "counseling"

    Pros

    You can get help with supervision if you're looking to get a CADC.

    Cons

    The pay is extremely low considering the amount of work demanded. This causes high turn-over in clinical and medial staff. Caseloads often go above the 40 clients that is promised during interview and regulated by KY law. This turns the job into little more than case management. The hours are terrible 5am-1pm M-F, plus weekend mornings occasionally. Many of the clinical staff are inexperienced in counseling and have little knowledge of actual addiction treatment techniques. Management is only worried about patients staying in treatment to keep money coming in, and keeping their charts 100% accurate (even if not true). Management and upper management doesn't know how to speak to their employees in a professional constructive-criticism style of speech. I've witnessed fellow co-workers in tears multiple times over the way they were talked to by management. Spend any time there as a patient or staff, and you'll realize that this is just a money-making machine, not a treatment facility.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a decent wage and get some better clinical staff in. Also might help keep the turnover from being so high. Make an effort to make it more of a counseling / treatment environment, instead of just a cash factory.

    Pros

    Provided opportunity to expand my knowledge and clinical practice

    Cons

    The salary was terrible for the amount of work expected and the hours necessary to accomplish what was expected. The clinical team was terribly inexperienced and unprofessional.
    It was poorly managed and the executive director was unethical in his practices.

    Advice to Management

    Insist on hiring professional clinicians and monitor the clinic more frequently. Invest in the overall success of the clinic by offering more competitive salaries which in turn can only enchance the quality of care for the patients.

    Pros

    This type of business is needed to help fight addiction to opiates.

    Cons

    I also worked for this company and the two previous reviews are correct. The owners expect people with master's degrees to work for peanuts and to perform several roles such as take money from patients, clean the offices and try to counsel with all of their patients. All this for $16.00 hr. Both owners are unethical in practice and want to keep their patients addicted to methadone. It's the almighty dollar that counts not getting the patients well and drug free. They frowned on counselors helping their patients titrate off methadone and constantly hammered on us to keep the census up.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about people not your bank account.

    Pros

    Clients are in need of good therapists who care about them and not just taking their money

    Cons

    Management will wear you down and tear you down, hoping they can control pretty much everything you do as a counselor here.

    Advice to Management

    Only greedy unethical people force counselors to deny services to their cllients because they are short one dollar and then the next day expect them to counsel that same client and gain their trust!
