Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – page park drive – July 31, 2017
Lexington Center for Recovery is a great agency. This job is well managed, has a good work team, and is very rewarding, Like anything in life, there is always room for improvement but LCR makes their employees want to be apart of the experience.

I enjoyed working with the patients. You understand the disease of addiction from working with them. Some are committed to sobriety and some are not. The working conditions were poor. Poor supervisor. Poor coworkers. There was a "therapist" who couldn't even make eye contact with coworkers or patients. Some of the therapists are in recovery and are less than forgiving with the patients. I have heard personnel has changed a lot, as well as the director and that things are better. I learned a lot here but certainly not from my supervisor or coworker.

Lexington is a great place to work if you want to be surrounded by staff lacking boundaries, professionalism or purpose. Tons of people are fired over gossip and rumors, while those breaking HIPAA guidelines get promoted. Don't bother trying to improve the quality of care; you'll be undermined and terminated for that. I'd love to say the clients are the problem, but they are not. The problem is a very dysfunctional and ineffective administrative structure and personnel. Work here if you'd like to be frustrated and talked about behind your back- by senior staff. Leaving is the first step to a healthy recovery!
I currenty work with client's who are recovering from substance abuse.
