Burnout is highly likely
Music Therapist (Former Employee) –  Newark, DESeptember 22, 2014
There is little support here. Coworkers are too wrapped up in themselves to be of any help or support. Everyone is stressed out all the time. It seems the management has no idea how much they can reasonably ask clinical staff to do. I have had to cope with unreasonable expectations regarding the number of groups and notes I was supposed to complete in a day. It's just not possible.

Furthermore, I've heard stories from patients who have stayed at other hospitals, and they have said that in comparison, they don't feel they are getting much out of their stay here.

stressful work enviroment but very beneficial
Recovery Specialist (Current Employee) –  Newark, DEMay 21, 2013
typical day consisted of montioring patients and evaluating safety as well as conducting beneficial therapeutic groups. I learned the value of being understanding of adolescents and adults suffering from suicidal ideation as well as dual diagnosis. My coworkers were essential in getting the job done sucessfully being as though it is definitely a team job. The hardest part of the job was keeping the adolescents as well as the adult treatment focused. The most enjoyable part of the job is to see how effective the groups and talks are with the patients.
Pros
sometimes free meals
Cons
short breaks, staffing
