Counselor II (Former Employee) – Northridge, CA – April 17, 2017
The diverse populations this agency serves truly enhances an employees personal and professional development. They are a long standing agency and have several different work cultures within it. I think this is a great place to work but it may vary from program to program, supervisor to supervisor. They are ahead of times and make it a habit to stay at the forefront of new trends in the field.
training opportunities, various work shifts available, many paid vacation days
Substance Abuse Counselor (Former Employee) – Lancaster, CA – January 30, 2017
Substance Abuse Treatment is a lot of work but it is also very rewarding. To be able to see someone at their worse and by the time they complete their program make a 100 degree turn around is very rewarding. Do it again in a heartbeat if it was part time.

Substance Abuse Counselor (Former Employee) – Lancaster, CA – June 29, 2016
A typical work day included conducting individual substance abuse counseling as well as group intervention sessions. There were weekly team meetings and training. Management was unapproachable and distant. Made for an uncomfortable work environment. Many of my co-workers conducted themselves in unprofessional manners which resulted in producing a stressful work environment.
A business without restraint. A business which treats the wrong people, money is the object. There has been financial scandle found, when they laid
Treament Counselor Level 2 (Former Employee) – Tarzana, CA – September 10, 2015
Tarzana treatment center is not legal, is not conducive to recovery, encourages a revolving door on detox, gives people psychiatric labels in order to recieve the insurance money. I was freed. This was the hardest partof the job working at a facility where my heart was not supporting it.
The experience of bad and good
Lack of moral support, always on the defense, funny things happening to staff and patients. Lack of control over patients

I have learned so much in working at Tarzana. I have awesome relationships with my co-workers and other staff.

Nursery Caregiver (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – December 30, 2013
I had plenty of children to work with. I learned how to communicate with children and to have patience with them. Ms. Crystal Clapton was a great manager and was the one whom taught me the most. The hardest part was to learn to have patience with the children through all types of temper tantrums they threw. The most enjoyable part was to see the smiles on the children when their parents would come and pick them up.
Played a lot with kids, had many breaks, enjoyed many happy moments
