Reviews for Addiction Counselor at Government of the Northwest Territories
Managers on power trips.
Management are aloof and unable to cooperate with employees to do anything outside of the mandate, As a result an inflexible system of services that only maintain a status quo and lead to a continuation of the same issues and problems. The North will be the same in 20 years as it is now as the band-aid procedures and the cover your butt mentality continues to support those in power. Any new ideas are quickly seen as threatening despite the science behind them For example they still advocate for 12 step addiction treatment.
Pay is good.
Feels like a police state, they monitor you facebook, control your every action outside and in work.
