Careers with Recovery Centers of America
Inspire change, save lives, and grow professionally
A recovery-friendly workplace
“This place is amazing. I really can’t imagine working anywhere else. Where patients might think, ‘nobody understands me,’ here they DO understand because numerous staff have been through the recovery journey themselves! They’ve been where the patient is. And now I’m the lucky one who gets to help others in the same position.” – Julie Toy, Alumni Relations Coordinator
At RCA, we talk the talk, and we also walk the walk.
- Many of us have shared experiences and empathize with each other and our patients. We have a special bond that allows us to lift each other up. From our leadership and executive staff to our frontline employees, many of us are in recovery.
- We come from all walks of life and all different backgrounds. What matters the most is what we all have in common: a passion for helping our patients who are suffering from addiction.
- Addiction doesn’t discriminate, and neither do we.
In other words, we accept you for who you are. Your past doesn’t dictate your future here.
Fulfilling, purposeful work. Recovery is who we are.

A Day in the Life:
The heartbeat of our work is the passion we share in our pursuit of saving people’s lives from addiction, one neighborhood at a time.
Learn what drives us.
In our collective experience, the best places to work are the ones that drive towards a common goal, and the RCA team stands unwaveringly united in providing treatment and resources that relieve suffering from the disease of addiction. We believe that if you truly care about what you do, every working day is worth it.
We understand the wreckage that can be left behind when a loved one is struggling with addiction— so we work relentlessly to deliver an addiction treatment and admissions process that is easy, effective, accessible, affordable, and effective. We heal and strengthen the mind, body, and spirit, increasing the likelihood of achieving and maintaining long-lasting recovery.
Our philosophy is that we, and the families of those we treat, are all in this together, which is why we treat every patient, family member, and team member with dignity, discretion, and respect.
Staying sober is a team effort, and we are part of each patient’s team
Each employee is fundamental to our patients’ success
We trust and treat each other fairly; integrity is critical
We surround ourselves with like-minded professionals, all striving towards a common mission

RCA’s employee benefits
What RCA employees say
My team’s daily performance report isn’t just about metrics. What do we watch and obsess about? Lives saved.
People are on a mission here and it is wonderful to work with so many who correctly look at this as more than a job, because it is! Incredible resources and innovation! Many motivated, hard-working peers. We really ARE saving lives! The culture is serious but also casual and many here make themselves available 24/7. There is a tremendous effort to lead with a respect for patients that is all too lacking at so many other places.
I honestly love working at RCA. The management work just as hard if not harder than they expect their staff to. The staff are all eager to help each other succeed and grow. There is a ton of room for advancement through the company and I honestly would love to retire at RCA.
We hold ourselves up to our values. One of those values is that every RCA employee has the opportunity to develop and advance. At RCA you can start on the housekeeping team and work to become a Recovery Support Specialist. You can start as an Admissions Coordinator and work your way up to become an Executive Director. But it doesn’t stop there, because we don’t believe in limitations. Your path is up to you.
