Work with at-risk-kids, can be reward but also frustrating

I have been working at Acadia Healthcare

Pros

You get to work with kids and hopefully make a positive impact on their lives. Working at the site is interesting because of the kids interacting but it is also a rather grim place

Cons

First kid I worked with didn't listen to anything I said and was %100 defiant. Sometimes difficult to understand exactly where you fit in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean up the main facility. That is my my main concern with Desert Hills up until this point just go

    No management support, no morale among staff.

    I worked at Acadia Healthcare

    Pros

    If you enjoy working with troubled kids, then there are a lot of opportunities for you to counsel them.

    Cons

    Support from management is almost non existent, always short staffed, staff are in potentially dangerous situations with little help and at times single staffed when they shouldn't be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The kids are the ones who are suffering. It isn't all about the money. That isn't why the Village was founded and it is on a downward spiral.

    I worked at Acadia Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some good co-workers and the opportunity to help those in need.

    Cons

    Continually understaffed by design to maximize $$ over patient care or safety.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With just a bit more staff, this place could be safer, more effective and actually keep staff longer. Every member of this organization should be required to work the floor quarterly to see the difficulty of caring for patients with so little resources.
