Join Our Team

Welcome to Alcohol & Drug Services!  We highly value our team of dedicated staff and we welcome new, friendly faces.

We are a workplace where our staff enjoys excellent benefits, including a generous amount of paid time-off for renewal, refreshment, and family time. In addition, staff has the ability to leave early, the day before each scheduled holiday.

Our cafeteria plan of health care options affords choices which meet staffs’ individual needs. We are geared towards wellness and healthy life styles. This includes working together to contain health care costs.

ADS staff love to celebrate and enjoy the professional time we share together by making each day a positive experience for staff and the individuals we serve.

Our casual dress policy is popular among staff. Throughout the year, our staff enjoys site-specific activities, as well as company-wide gatherings where we share information and enjoy fellowship through games, prizes, and lots of good food – whether catered, or prepared by some of the best cooks in the state – our own ADS staff!

ADS acknowledges the importance of training and assists staff when possible with in-house courses at no charge. Some of these trainings include: HIV/AIDS, Ethics, Confidentiality, Nonviolent Crisis Intervention, First Aid, CPR, Client Rights, Blood Borne Pathogens, and Cultural Competency. External training opportunities are also available to obtain and maintain professional, job-related credentials. Staff who earn certain credentials during their employment with us are also awarded a bonus!
