Company reviews
"One of my favorite places"
Former EmployeeMedical Receptionist
Working at PermiaCare was more like a family, it has been hands down, my favorite place to work. Had I not moved I believe I would have been there for many years to come.

"Productive and Challenging environment"
Former EmployeeNursing Supervisor
Overall the job pushed me to learn new things about licensing and caring for substance abuse patients. I gained a deeper understanding of detox medications and the process recovering addicts go through.

"I wouldn't do it"
Current EmployeeAdministrative Assistant
CEO is fake, self serving, and treats the employees who work hard and dedicate themselves like personal slaves. Will easily tell you at any point you are replaceable, you do not mean anything. Company is full of drama, back stabbing, and incompetence, that starts from the top and trickles its way down. Stay away unless you are desperate!
