company that claims they are about wellness first, but is primarily concerned with business aspects
Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Therapist (Former Employee) – Livonia, MI – November 5, 2018
Job seekers, BEWARE: Don't expect to advance much with this company unless you're willing to be a corporate kiss-butt and place business values over ethical and moral values. Get in, get out, get the experience and hours you need to move on. Don't give it another thought or ounce of energy. I honed my counseling skills and earned the hours I needed to earn my full licensure. Also, maintained stable income and had access to healthcare and a 403(b) retirement plan. Higher-ups wanted me to double-book clients just to make productivity standards, which is completely out of the therapist's control because if clients decide not to show up to their appointments, productivity is jeopardized. clients are the easier part of the job and most enjoyable, documentation and the way in which management wishes you to complete documentation is the difficult part. they require both paper and electronic documentation, and wind up repeating yourself in what you document more often than not. the required documentation is highly excessive and requires at least an hour out of the regular work day to complete. management has no respect for you or the job you perform, you're just a number and will get rid of you for any reason they see fit if you don't play the business and politics game, even if you don't ethically feel that compliance with their standards is appropriate.
