    I worked at Discovery House full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the home atmosphere that the Program Director created not just with the staff, but also the patients. We were constantly encouraged to think of new ways to engage the patients in treatment. The counselors were encouraged to get to know all of the patients, because even though we have a set case load we would be able to work with patients who were on another counselors caseload.

    Cons

    There are few cons at the facility I worked in, but I would say the biggest one is that the focus is on money and retention of patients who should have been let go but haven't been. This is because the employees fear being shut down for not making enough money.

    Pros

    This company has taken the every opportunity to improve the experience of both the clients and employees.

    Cons

    Only con I would have about them is that there are not more states they are in.
