The company itself is good, it's this site that's horrible. Program director is a horrible person & so as his his assistant, which is his wife. Apparently he's known in Philadelphia for his "great work" but he doesn't know what he's doing. They won't put anything in policy so nothing's official and they can change the rules all the time. They basically keep people on methadone for life so they can keep making money instead of helping them getting clean and sober and have productive lives. The patients in this clinic run the show. They let them do whatever they want. They can show up high as a kite and as soon as the nurse says they will not be medicated, patients immediately run to the program director and try to override the nurse's decision. The doctors and counselors are just as bad.
Management also micromanages. Program director wants to be in things he shouldn't be involved in. They also make positions for their friends so they can keep working in the clinic even though they're extremely unproductive.
No pay raise the whole time I was there. I was getting bonuses once a year, which do not even amount to a $1 raise, and the amount you get is controlled by the program director. The moment he doesn't like you because you don't agree with him, there goes your bonus!
They don't care about their employees and will throw you under the bus without hesitation.
Prison program management is horrible. The supervisor there when I resigned did not know anything. He just got the job coz the other counselor can barely speak English.
Once you decide to leave and give your 2 weeks notice, – more... they treat you like a red headed stepchild and if you don't keep in touch with the main office in Spring Garden, the program director will try to mess up your pay and the vacation time you have left to get paid for.
Basically, if you want to get experience in a drug treatment facility, this is somewhere to go just to get some time in but don't plan on staying here long. Also, if you need to use this place as a reference for your new job, don't use this place's actual address because the employees here won't help you. Direct everything to the main office. People are actually competent there and they'll really help you out. – less
