Working in a detox center, safety is very important. The day starts at 5:30 in the morning with the registration of the clients who are assess from the moment they enter the building. They are assess by looking at how they walk, there speech, their eyes and their mannerisms, as most of the clients we serve have mental issues and take other medications as well, also most of them have a history of drug abuse, prescription and illicit drugs. My assessment skills have improved a lot from working with this population, and how to manage and work with this group effectively and see results. Everyone work as a multidisciplinary group to fulfill our client's needs, nurses and counselors and other members of the team. The hardest part of the job is to get the clients to comply at times with some of the rules at the center. The most rewarding part of the job is the successes, when a client is successful and move on to a more productive life.

Counselor (Former Employee) – Bridgeport, CT – February 1, 2019
There is no opportunity for growth once so ever. There is a great disconnect with management and corporate office employers. Minor and simple solutions would make this organization a better place, until then it is a stressful and catastrophic experience.
Good counselors. Patients are pretty chill.
Miscommunication on many levels. Pass the buck type of company.

Recovery network of programs is a fasted paced company, you will get hired as a counselor and get a case load of 65 people and they want you to do other jobs to so they wont have to hire other people and it wont cost them money. So you also check people in and do urine screens and still only get paid to be a counselor
