Great, holistic treatment philosophy; Management is terrible!
Counselor (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJuly 8, 2017
I was employed with NARA for a year and a half. In my time there, I went through 2 CS's/2 PM's. Management gets in way of mission/work. As a CADC, we were always understaffed. Hiring process is a joke. Pay scale is a joke. There is no case management software so completing clinical notes is time consuming (archaic system). I love the holistic treatment philosophy and the presence of spirituality; however, as stated, management gets in the way of good work. NARA needs to get with the times and practice what they preach!
Pros
Holistic Treatment Philosophy
Cons
Mismanagement; Micromanaging; Poor Hiring Process; Archaic Software

was great until they changed the management and started changing jobs and work environment without any good communication.

I had a great time until then. They are terrible communicators

This used to be a great place to work
Youth A&D Counselor (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORMay 12, 2017
I worked at NARA for about 2 years. For the first 20 months or so it was a fabulous place to work with a great interoffice culture and teammates you could count on. Then the paranoid CEO got in the way, and I chose to give notice.
There is a complete lack of trust from the CEO to the employees and your entire life will be continuously monitored by the CEO through your social media and the webcam on your company laptop. The CEO micromanages the entire company, so nothing ever gets done in a timely manner. It takes months for them to onboard new employees, make everyday decisions, and implement program changes.
The organization is run like a dictatorship, and anyone that questions the process is terminated as soon as opportunity is found.
Pros
Great teammates; the opportunity to do meaningful work
Cons
CEO; lower than average pay; micromanagement; lack of autonomy

Worked with addictions and mental health. Co-workers were very helpful to each other in regard to collaborative care. Counselors and therapists were very helpful to each individual client. This is a cultural specific program with therapist/ counselors from tri9bes all over the region and country helping clients from various tribes from all over the country.
