Community Resources Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – March 20, 2017
Educating the community on the importance of helping those in need overcome addiction was rewarding. Working with those in the program and training them in job and life skills was fun and rewarding as well.
BHT (Current Employee) – Deer Park, TX – February 21, 2017
One minute you were told one thing and it would change the next day. Communication through company email was laughable. No consistency and with all this supposed communication very little important information was communicated. Some of the staff are there because it's their passion to help others and some are there to complain and cause drama. Overall not a good place to work. Management was extremely unprofessional. Biased, no accountability and childish.
Certified Medical Assistant/MedTech (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – January 18, 2017
There's never a dull moment in substance abuse always fast pace very interesting and very busy, can be mentally demanding but heart filling knowing your helping people everyday through their struggles.
Executive (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – December 20, 2016
Cenikor provides a culture of accountability and dedication. There is a true feeling of family - in that each member of the team pushes their colleagues and themselves to be the very best. There is not a spirit of competition but of collaboration to the benefit and service of our clients. It is a very fast-paced environment, built on fiscal responsibility and quality care. That said, each day is rewarding to work with some outstanding people while working together to make a difference in the lives of those in need.
Driver (Current Employee) – Deer Park, TX – November 21, 2016
It has been a great experience . I have gotten to know new people. Have had a great time hearing some of the stories people have from their experiences overall it has been eye opening and has helped me to get know myself better
Very unorganized with little support for medical staff
Nurse (Former Employee) – Texas – November 10, 2016
Cenikor, in theory, sounds like a great program. However, there is little to no support for the licensed medical staff. At times you are the only licensed nurse with maybe 1-2 MHTs that are not adequately trained for a medical emergency. The nurse is responsible for up to 12 detox patients and 28 residential patients. No safety training or plan of action should a patient become combative. Medications are not properly accounted for and no security for the Nurse in the Med room. I actually witnessed a patient being handed an unlabeled pill organizer with who knows what kind of meds to take out whatever they needed. Basically, if you don't care about your license being put in jeopardy every day then this is a great place to work!
Program Technician (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – March 22, 2016
The people that are in place for various positions I believe were hand picked by God because they really do their position well. If the pay were to increase I would not be wanting to seek out other employment.
Interesting treatment program for alcohol and drugs.
Clinical Supervisor (Former Employee) – TX – January 6, 2016
This program was developed in a correctional facility. As someone who has never experience this culture, I was in shock. This was not a good fit for me. I enjoyed the challenge of working with these clients. They were very respectful and cooperative. Management were former graduates of the program and were very knowledgeable about the program philosophy. This program does have some success. There was a lot of preferential treatment. One client was given the run of the place and acted inappropriately toward female clients. He was always believed by management. It eventually came out that he had acted inappropriately with at least one female client. There were other problems with other clients but not as serious as this one.
Great place to work if you have no ethics and no life.
Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, Texas – September 16, 2015
No flex time, no holiday time, expected to work hours beyond what you are paid, behavior of upper management is the antithesis.of their stated "core values." SOLE mission of this alleged non-profit is to pad the pockets of the "Corporate" employees.
Pay is below market, shortcuts are taken at every opportunity, patients are viewed as subhuman, yet felons are routinely hired, even at the corporate level.
I enjoyed the continuation of ideas and experience displaying how enterprising this company was. They continued to challenge me with various types of clients / patients to help me learn and improve in my talents.
unknown (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – April 10, 2015
Very poor managenent, and director. The clients are suppose to be first priority, but instead management is all about self. Management needs to be investigated by the upper management team. The director and other management personnel are very close friends. Clients don't get a second chance at anything, they get put out the program by management. The program is for clients to get it together instead of management putting them out the first time something happens. I think if they would get a management team that's for the clients and not against the clients it would be a better place to work.
Clinical (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – January 26, 2015
Terrible management. No training. Bad hours of work. Low pay. Cult like atmosphere. Work camp. Care more about the bottom dollar then the clients. It's horrible. If you are considering it, don't waste your time.
Counselor (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge – July 23, 2014
Horrible place to work. Virtually no professionalism in managers and staff. They put more emphasis on using the clients to fill positions so that the wages stay low and replace qualified people with graduates with little to no experience.
No communication between staff/ very unprofessional staff
Counselor (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – May 30, 2014
Working as a substance abuse counselor can sometimes be very stressful, however, it's also very rewarding, I love working with the public and helping others. My co-workers and I work as a team, effective communication is the key. The hardest part of my job is watching a client leave the program before their time and return to their old way of living. The most enjoyable part of my job is watching families come together again.
