HR (Former Employee) – Franklin, TN – February 17, 2019
The hardest job ever! Work balance was a joke, fake management and coworkers. Management was only concerned about the bottom line and not the employees, if they were overworked and under paid. Lots of politics and brown nosing. Work here if you would like a career in politics!
Filthiest place of business Ive ever seen! Note to CEO: Take a walk through the nurses station and give it as much attention and raise the expectations! Give nurses as much pressure to maintain cleanliness and a healthy environment as much as you give the counselors on their paperwork deadlines Its all about numbers here and to heck with health and cleanliness. Oh and the patients? They are fed methadone like babies to the breast, there is NO true recovery here as hundreds of patients daily have to pay for their dose of methadone and are not encouraged to wean off because if the patients go away, the money goes away!
hours of operation
dirty, everything filthy about this place and nobody seemed to mind.
Steer clear. This place is a trainwreck with constant turnover and poor management.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – January 27, 2019
This place does not treat their employees or their patients with respect. You are a body to fill a slot on the schedule and the pediatric patients are treated poorly by a majority of the staff. If you take a stand and try to do what's right, then you are ostracized and mistreated. There is no real incentive to stay here.

Nurse (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – January 22, 2019
If you've worked in healthcare before, you know what type of environment to expect. This job is no different. Some days are hectic, can test your patience, and make you feel like you're in the wrong field. Thankfully, those days are few and far between. It's the good days that make it worthwhile. The day a patient comes in and tells you they didn't use last night because they didn't want to disappoint you. The day when someone finishes out the program and is strong in their sobriety. The day when you take a new patient in from a bad situation and give them hope. The day when our patients realize someone cares. Those are the days to keep in mind.
As a whole, it's a lot of on the job training, but there are resources to help you along the way. It is team based and everyone, regardless of job title, works with one another to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients. My clinic director is approachable and really cares about the patients as individuals, not just as numbers. The hours are nice, and the benefits are great. There is also potential to move up within the company.
I have no plans on leaving my current job, and have even thought about continuing my education to further my role within Acadia.
With a little patience and hard work, you won't be sorry you work here!
Manager (Current Employee) – East Portland, OR – January 18, 2019
I started out my career 5 years ago as an intern. I have been able to gain more education and experience allowing me to move up to various positions in the company. The company is a great place for someone who wants to grow within a company.
Regional Director (Current Employee) – Vancouver, WA – January 18, 2019
Acadia provides job security and career advancement opportunities. There is an emphasis on the individual patient needs and a high standard for quality of care. The different departments are supportive of the employees and the environment is team-oriented and pleasant, despite the stresses associated with the nature of behavioral health work.
Counselor II (Former Employee) – San Marcos, CA – January 18, 2019
Unfortunately the company isn’t going to invest in their employees that want to be there for the long haul if they expect them to leave in 6 months. There’s no stability, most employees quit after 6 months because of poor management & lack of respect for the employees. There’s no amount of compensation or pay to make up for the demands & stress management expects from you!! Do NOT waste a moment of your time applying at company, it’s not worth it!!
Horrible place to work. Physically and mentally draining
Medical Billing Specialist (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – January 14, 2019
I came into this job very excited but it became a very disappointing very quickly. Management is clueless. Parking is a huge pain. It’s common for someone to get a parking ticket. The favoritism is incredibly frustrating, the last two people to get promoted were not only related but also Close family friends with the regional business office director. The annual raises are insulting (34 cents). STAY AWAY!!!
Director of Health Information Management (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – January 11, 2019
Management is good. Really like the people I work with. Medical Director is great the clinical staff has come along way. This facility is a very enjoyable place to work. Most enjoyable part is seeing the work that we do.
I worked at Acadia for two years on their corporate marketing team. Upper management, directors and cmo, not only micromanaged, but actively encouraged a toxic competitive environment while clearly playing favorites. There was also zero emphasis on continuing education.
chose not to answer (Current Employee) – Lemont, IL – January 5, 2019
if you need supervision hours this is your place. Management and growth is non-existent. Lack of variety, revolving door of employees, too much movement in upper management to make long term effective changes
Fast paced, friendly team atmospher, and rewarding
Substance Abuse Counselor (Current Employee) – York, PA – December 26, 2018
Working at White Deer Run has been a very positive experience in almost every aspect. As a detox counselor, the nursing staff, intake staff, and all clinical staff work well together in a very supportive manner to assist clients in obtaining the best care for each individual.
