Job Description:

"The best part about being a Substance Abuse Counselor at RCA is that I get to be part of a new solution for patients who have only known hopelessness and despair." - Meg F., Substance Abuse Counselor

RCA's Passion

In 2013, Recovery Centers of America (RCA) announced a goal: Save one million lives from the disease of addiction. We're working fast and hard to fulfill that promise, with over 15 facilities that offer evidence-based inpatient, outpatient, and medication-assisted treatment 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We know one size doesn't fit all when it comes to addiction treatment; that's why we tailor our treatment for each patient and offer specialized programs for patients with trauma and multiple recurrences, as well as programs for older adults, first responders, and more.

We believe in the power of local treatment, because families are a huge part of the treatment and recovery process at RCA. Our family program rebuilds, restores, or strengthens family relationships.
