I worked at Acadia Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Loved my job for a long time prior to take over. Working with clients was wonderful and I
could see the difference my work was making in their lives.

Cons

When take over was in progress I was happy thinking the favoritism would be resolved and policy would change such as family working together and convicted felons would be removed from positions. All that happened was the top was given new titles. RN's replaced by inexperienced LPN's and new grads.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wake up. No doubt I will be reading about a sentinel event in the newspaper soon. What ever happened to exit interviews. After you have had an employee for yrs don't you wonder why in this job market they would quit?? Poor compliance with safety issues. Fall precautions safe detox. Multiple Med errors by incompetent staff overlooked and discarded. Large staff turn over.

    Work with at-risk-kids, can be reward but also frustrating

    I have been working at Acadia Healthcare

    Pros

    You get to work with kids and hopefully make a positive impact on their lives. Working at the site is interesting because of the kids interacting but it is also a rather grim place

    Cons

    First kid I worked with didn't listen to anything I said and was %100 defiant. Sometimes difficult to understand exactly where you fit in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the main facility. That is my my main concern with Desert Hills up until this point just go

    No management support, no morale among staff.

    I worked at Acadia Healthcare

    Pros

    If you enjoy working with troubled kids, then there are a lot of opportunities for you to counsel them.

    Cons

    Support from management is almost non existent, always short staffed, staff are in potentially dangerous situations with little help and at times single staffed when they shouldn't be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The kids are the ones who are suffering. It isn't all about the money. That isn't why the Village was founded and it is on a downward spiral.
