Very unhealthy. There is a tremendous staff turnover at Acadia. It is a big corporation and cares more about money than staff or patients. Everything is about numbers. Patients are admitted, though they are not appropriate for the specific level of care, just to keep the numbers up. Staff is overworked and underpaid. Support staff does not get breaks. It's very sad and people--staff and patients--are depressed, anxious, and don't last very long. Very high burnout rate.

NO patient care and only as good as your intervals (it's about numbers NOT care). Counselors, even the best ones are judged by the numbers, not the care. HIGHLY STRESSFUL not because of the patients but because of the unrealistic request for ####'s from the corporate office.

I'm sorry to those that are unhappy and weak minded; this job is a fast paced work environment it takes organization, patience, boundaries, passion, and skill. Your always busy yes so if you can't handle the consistent go go (makes the days go by fast) then this job is not for you. I love it here the hours are great and my coworkers are good team workers we have a good team going if you can handle it join our team......
