    I have been working at Northeast Addictions Treatment Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing work environment. The dedication and time the employees/employers put in on a daily basis is astounding. They strive daily to help as many struggling alcoholics and drug addicts as possible. This job has truly changed my outlook on life and I am grateful to be part of this team.

    Cons

    Not being able to help save each and every individual

    Pros

    I have been employed with Northeast Addictions Treatment Center now for nearly one year and it has been the most rewarding position I have ever held. Those involved in management are always there to answer a question or lend a hand. I have learned so much over the past year and look forward to a long career with this team.

    Cons

    I have yet to find any cons to working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Northeast Addictions Treatment Center full-time

    Pros

    I have been in the mental health/addiction field for eleven years and have never felt so appreciated as I do here at Northeast. The staff is extremely helpful and always willing to pitch in for support and brainstorming. The culture is a culture of respect, dignity, and team work. The program itself has been identified in my eyes as one of the best and supportive programs available for those suffering with mental health issues and addiction. Northeast has gone above and beyond for all patients and offer the quality of care that any family member would be satisfied with.

    Cons

    None at this time.

    I have been working at Northeast Addictions Treatment Center full-time

    Pros

    I have been working here at Northeast for awhile now and love my job. I love the staff I work with. This program is changing and growing significantly. Everyone is welcoming and always willing to help out. New Management is welcoming and always listens to concerns. My supervisor helps out all the time when in need - says, "there is never a job too small." I never get fought on time off - they truly believe in self care here. I see former complaints about this facility, and its from people who were fired. This facility doesn't push clients out the door. The owners scholarship people if their insurance runs out or they truly need help. This facility just got JOINT accreditation, so that speaks VOLUMES. You have to work hard here in order to succeed, but that should be for any job.

    Cons

    I am hoping the schedule changes Mon-Fri. I think it is amazing that clinical staff has a clinical day to catch up on documentation - I never heard of any other facility that does it, but I believe Mon-Fri schedule for clinical and clients will benefit.

    I have been working at Northeast Addictions Treatment Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am currently a full time employee of Northeast and it’s the most fulfilling, challenging, and clinical position I have had while working in the mental health field. I am respected, valued, and compensated well above the industry rates. We have a relatively small staff, giving everyone an equal and important role in the company. Staff are wonderful, funny, experienced, and hard working. Expectations and communication are clear throughout all departments. I’m grateful to be a part of a company that is reputable and continuing to grow. This isn’t your average mental health job. Therapists are expected to facilitate groups throughout the week, maintain a case load while incorporating weekly individual and family sessions, and intervening with difficult patients and redirecting patients who are an AMA risk.

    Cons

    If you are not willing to work hard or are looking for an easy job, don’t apply. We are all self motivated and passionate about helping patients and working as a team. People who come in with a bad attitude or poor work ethic don’t last and are just not helpful to our current work flow.

    I have been working at Northeast Addictions Treatment Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great clinical program and great staff with hearts second to none. The Medical Director and clinical staff are the best in New England in my opinion. The patients absolutely get well and that is the most rewarding thing to see.

    Cons

    It can often be demanding and hours can be tough due to the strong commitment one must have in the field of addiction treatment. Many are not cut out to work for a program that requires excellence in clinical reporting and utmost dedication to the patients. This is not a program for a novice therapist or addiction professional. One must truly be willing to help the sick and suffering as well have extensive addiction treatment experience to work at Northeast.

    Advice to Management

    Additional office space for staff

    Pros

    Assortment of treatment interventions , great teamwork and compassion for our patients.

    Cons

    I have none and believe in the curriculum and mission statement.

    Advice to Management

    I am currently employed and I am sorry that people that supposedly were employed at Northeast had such a bad experience. Since I have been here there has been growing pains( normal for a new company) and the benefits that I receive are top of the line. Since I have been here the main core of employees have been working tirelessly with helping clients achieve their goals and exceed their own potential. I look forward to going to work and with the help of my co-workers provide top level of care to men and women that have the courage to initiate momentous changes in their lives. I acknowledge that a few months ago there was some staff changes but if you ask me they were for the better. We have a solid team and we are growing exponentially and continue to provide A++ service to the clients and their families as they grow into the motivated , confident and independent people they truly are.

    I worked at Northeast Addictions Treatment Center full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits for the addictions field. Some clients do well in this program.

    Cons

    Very difficult leadership to work for, incredibly demanding, demeaning, and have little to no regard for the ethical and moral ramifications of their decisions. Lying to clients and manipulating them to get them into the program are a common occurrence, certain staff will often make jokes about the deception of potential clients. Once in the program leadership will use any type of "leverage" possible to keep the client in treatment, the program will manipulate and use family, legal, or employment to keep the individual there against their will, this is mostly done to drain the individual of insurance benefits. Another main issue is employees are offered significant bonuses for referrals, sadly many ethical and moral lines are crossed too much at this company simply because of money.
    Majority of people in charge have very little to no experience working in the substance abuse treatment and mental health field.
    Long hours, constant changing schedules, staff turnover, and incredibly excessive case loads.
    You are expected to be on call 24/7 without receiving compensation.
    Clinical staff has turned over at least three times in the short time it has been opened.
    This is a profit driven company that tries to pretend otherwise, very deceptive people within this organization.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate why they entered the human service field.

    I worked at Northeast Addictions Treatment Center full-time

    Pros

    There's a lot of room for advancement because it's a new organization (and the turnover rate is so high) and the clients are friendly.

    Other than that, it was probably the single worst job I've ever held.

    Cons

    If I could give this organization 0 stars, I would.

    So many unethical practices take place there. It actually made me sick. The clients are not treated with respect, the employees are not treated with respect, and the executive director is probably one of the most manipulative, uncaring people I've ever met in my entire life.

    In addition to that, the pay was low when I worked there (perhaps this has changed based upon the one other review that didn't clearly come from the current upper management), the benefits were barely there, the management didn't effectively do their jobs, there was no training provided for new hires, and false advertising was a huge problem - the brochure advertised therapies that simply did not take place, ever, at least while I was working there.

    Honestly, I expected a lot more coming from people who have been through the ringer of addiction themselves but they're snake oil salesmen who are in it for the money.

    They also get payments for referring patients to certain sober houses in the area which is unethical, if not completely illegal.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your clients, listen to your employees, create a non-hostile work environment, and - most importantly - operate with ethics in mind.
