I have had a couple friends that completed treatment at Park Avenue and have done well with sobriety, so it is a good center for treatment for some individuals. When it comes to working their, I would not recommend it. If the woman in human resources does not like you for whatever reason, she will find a way to get you out. It's to bad that someone doesnt supervise her and the choices she makes. I don't recommend using Park Avenue if you are needing to intern for your LADC. I worked at the womans building and reported to a pre-doc student working towards her degree. Unfortunately this internship was a waste for me, as she knew nothing. There is nothing more frustrating than wanting to learn, yet being places with someone who has no answers. The worst thing I observed was another counselor having to explain to this pre-doc, why there is a culturally specific program for African American women. She has no clue that people of different ethnic backgrounds have different upbringings. With people like this leading the company it is no wonder so many people leave.

Horrible place to work. They save money by hiring former interns that have NO actual experience. The Director of their men's program only focuses on mental health and is not even a licensed alcohol and drug counselor. The owner of the company is all about making money, so he is expanding his business faster that one can imagine, and it shows in the number of GOOD counselors that have left within the last couple years. They advertise for job openings on INDEED, yet they blocked all of the reviews posted on that sight, since they were nothing but negative. You can't continue to hide how horrible and dysfunctional this company is. The County as well as the clients know the truth.
for the first time ,serial reviews numerous as the foster homes cadi sponsored for me in the twin cities ,all printed on one site,even though Minnesota Medical Assistance had rejected paying my daily rate for congregated care, the CADI waver has become gracious about approving imposed invasive procedures that take up 3 hours of staff time, I don't even need , which I can live without to prove my potential for independence.these days THEY'RE driving from the seat of the case in Hennepin county to arbitrary east Dakota county to see and approve arbitrary cares$300/day for twelve years ; it's been a million
This review is based on my own experience as a client.Talk to anyone who has completed the full 13-month program at Teen Challenge and you will hear something like, ''It was the hardest thing I've ever done.'' I don't know if I'd go that far, but it definitely ranks up there with the two or three hardest, most life-changing experiences I've had. I might call it the worst, best thing I've ever done. Truthfully, it is probably the best decision I've made in my adult life. But in the middle of it, one would be hard-pressed to find anything enjoyable about living in a group home full of recovering addicts all trying to sort out their ''stuff'' without going crazy. But hey, if it was fun it wouldn't be treatment...It is as much the actual programming as it is the experience of learning how to survive (while staying sober) the daily triggers and trials inherent in the environment that will change you. Think of it as stress inoculation. And, do not underestimate the faith-based component. It is the heart and soul of everything that is Teen Challenge. Teen Challenge is nothing if not a house of God; active, vibrant, and alive with the Spirit of Christ; right down to the very last broken and needy soul. If that doesn't appeal to you, buyer beware... But also know this is the largest, most successful addiction treatment program in the world for a reason. And for the price (Go ahead - compare it to the competition), I dare you to complain.
