    Pros

    Campus environment, multiple disciplines working as a unit on many occasions.

    Not-for-profit, multi-level management creates barriers to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treatment is the product and the service that the organization provides for the community, however treatment is not the goal of the community- recovery and wellness are the goal. The organization might do well to incorporate wellness and recovery values into its mission to truly reflect the community's needs.

    At DHHA, patients truly come first. They are a very community driven organization that not only looks out for their employees, but also everyone in their community.
