Awful Experience
Medical Assistant Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Stonington, CTJuly 3, 2016
A company ran for profit, and to cut corners at every chance. One which has many corrupt aspects and falsified files.

No compensation nor good benefits nor pay.
Cons
no breaks, little time off, argue medical leaves.

House Manager/OCH Coordinator/Billing Clerk (Former Employee) –  75 Swantown Hill Rd, North Stonington, CT 06359April 15, 2016
This company promotes a feeling of never knowing if one will have a job the next day. Most employees here are also in recovery and the management starting with the CEO treats them as if they are still people who do not care for themselves. It is a revolving door for anyone who goes there seeking help. I cannot compare it to other place since I have only worked at a few. But I do have to say the clients and the other managers are a team that work together. Managements hands are tied due to the diminished integrity of the CEO and those on his level.
Pros
some people are helped
Cons
most are not

Inconsistent, poorly run, and sketchy
MHW/MA/RA (Former Employee) –  North Stonington, CTJanuary 2, 2015
I had a pretty bad experience working for this company. The policies were constantly changing. Enforcing rules and policies were done on an individual basis. THey were only interested in making money regardless of the clients wellbeing. The cameras that are up for "client safety" are actually up to monitor the employees. Overtime was out of the question. Shift preference was out of the question. THe way they talk to you was as if you were a high school drop out. All of the administration was inconsistent in their answers to simple questions. A question was passed from person to person without any real answer being acquired.
Each of the residencies was dirty and housekeeping didn't do anything but vacuum (occasionally) and laundry.
I got the impression that they hoped the clients would relapse so they could get the money from admitting them again.
After speaking with many of the clients they didn't feel like they got anything out of the rehabilitation. They were helpful for those with a alcohol or drug abuse program but not for the other issue that veterans experience like PTSD.
Pros
Learning opportunity when speaking with the clients.
Cons
Everything else.

Negative Paranoid Environment with Decent Pay and Benefit Package
Medical (Former Employee) –  North StoningtonAugust 18, 2013
Sounded like an ideal position offering fair wages and decent benefits. Management micro-manages (I suspect this emanates at the CEO level). Many changes with an uncertain goal. It became clear why the majority of employees appeared tense and unhappy. On a positive note clients seem to receive good competent and compassionate care.
Pros
Wages, Benefits, Patient Care
Cons
Micro-Managing, Tense Employees, Changes for Change?

Medical Assistant (Current Employee) –  North Stonington, CTApril 11, 2012
I love the job that I perform and really enjoy the staff. A typical day at work includes Q15 checks on all clients, one-on-one, admissions, administrative work, vitals, and interacting with clients while keeping a professional stand point.

Poor work environment, not client centered
RN (Former Employee) –  GrotonFebruary 10, 2012
It was very difficult to work for a profit organization where our client base was improvised, on assistant from the government and Stonington Institutes focus was on making money not care for the clients. There was a large turn over of employees with all leadership coming from the CEO. The individual programs have very little say so in the day to day activities make employee moral very poor.
Pros
pay
Cons
supervision lacking, no direction, not client centered.
