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.
Working at RCA
Take a sneak peak into a day in the life of an RCA Counselor, Nurse and Recovery Support Specialist:
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, 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
Every employee has the opportunity to develop and advance
All employee’s ideas are welcome
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.
