I worked here for about 6 months. There are so many violations here, it is unbelievable. I reported my findings to their upper management and they fired me. It is very difficult to find a legitimate place to work in the drug and alcohol rehab field. After there was no corrections made on their part, I had to report them to the Los Angeles County Probation Department due to how they ran their Domestic Violence Program. Their Medi-Cal is a mess, and they bill the state for pizza parties or have the clients watch T.V. instead of group time. They give out free sign-ins and so on. I continued to warn their upper management about numerous violations, even after I was discharged I continued to warn them, but they don't care. OH well, I tried.
