Job Description

Mental Health Counselor

 

Counseling at a residential behavioral health facility might look a little different than you think. For starters, our counselors enjoy the benefit of working flexible hours with limited evening hours and only one weekend shift a month. This is an addition to three weeks of paid sick/vacation time and 9 paid holidays. They have the opportunity to profoundly impact the life of someone struggling with addiction, without the hassle of billing for their time. With a competitive salary of $23 to $26 an hour and a generous benefits package, you can’t afford not to apply for the Mental Health Counselor position.
