Case Manager/Transportation Coordinator/Data Entry (Former Employee) – Benton, AR – August 8, 2018
Working with them members was great. And while i rated the management only 3 stars, its two fold. Branch management was 5 stars, but the upper management at the administration building was roughly 2 starts. I tried to balance it out a little.
Primary Therapist (Former Employee) – Newport, AR – May 8, 2018
I worked for the Newport site, which I consider the "forgotten branch." Forgotten because they seem to have to struggle for funding, recognition, amenities, etc. more than the other sites. They come together for the members the best they can despite this. Cultural diversity at the Newport site is different than most of the other sites and employees there sometimes express passive aggressive racism. However, they're working on it. If you're looking to work as a therapist at the Newport site, realize they need a strong yet gentle, street-wise therapist with leadership skills.
Pay is good for therapists, paid time off is good.
401k doesn't begin until after 1 year, raises do not begin until 5 years
Behavioral Health Technician (Former Employee) – Benton, AR – April 30, 2018
A typical day at Birchtree would be to assist members as necessary or as assigned in maintaining a safe, clean, healthy treatment/residential environment. Partner with members and assist them in becoming progressively less dependent on staff to pursue their recovery process. And maintain healthy relationships with members, always respecting appropriate boundaries. The most rewarding part of the job is watching the individuals grow more independent and when they accomplish a goal to see them so excited and happy is rewarding to me.
Not many breaks by yourself, the members are around you 99% of the time.
Clinical Medical Records Clerk (Former Employee) – Benton, AR – March 15, 2018
I was tasked with maintaining the medical records for this facility. It was a busy job and the job itself was not stressful but knowing how mental illness can adversely impair someone could be very disheartening
Productive whenever you are working alongside the members
Recovery Assistant (Current Employee) – Benton, AR – January 24, 2018
A typical day at work is learning how to deal with each members issues for the day. I have learned the different symptoms as well as interventions of how to treat persons with mental disorders. I feel that it is a diverse group of people that we work with. The hardest part of the job is that there is no stability. The most important aspect is working with the members and their families.
Free lunches overtime whenever you are offered it.
short breaks and not enough hours to work on a scheduled shift.

Case Manager (Former Employee) – Oxford, AR – October 10, 2017
In the morning the members would watch the world news after eating breakfast. Then they would attend therapy with their therapist in a group for about 50 minutes. Usually around 11 there would be a Program group . Lunch at home at 12. From one until 330 there would be Program groups for the members to attend. During these program groups the members would learn more about their mental illness and how to deal with it. Learn how to manage their money. Learn about better hygiene.
Stable and organized environment that rehabilitates.
Residential Trainer Train (Former Employee) – Benton, AR – August 2, 2017
