Great place to work if you have passion for Addiction treatment...
Program Manager 1 (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, Louisiana – May 30, 2012
Great mission, with good leadership and room for advancement. Compensation is not exceptional but adequate and what you would expect from a non-profit organization. Executives and directors are very accessible. They are demanding but fair. I have always been treated professionally and with respect from every superior I have been in contact with. I cant speak for other facilities, but my coworkers are all highly ethical, hard workers who are dedicated to the mission. There is a relatively high turnover rate with the counselor positions due to the 1pm -10pm schedule, the large amounts of paperwork required by DHH and the difficulty for counselors to adapt to the TC model, but the manager and director positions are stable. Insurance and 401k are great, as well as the new employee development program which offers employees who are interested in advancement, extra training opportunities and extra tuition reimbursement. The hours are long and the workload can be thick. You must be a hard worker to succeed at Cenikor, therefore it helps to have a passion for helping those who struggle with addiction. The paid time off is plus also. Cenikor culture and the methods of the therapeutic community can be difficult to learn and adapt to, but if you have a passion for addiction treatment, you keep an open mind to a treatment model that has been working for years and years, and you are a hard worker, then Cenikor will be a great opportunity for you.
