For full-time positions, we offer HSA and PPO health insurance with HSA or FSA options (Blue Cross Blue Shield), dental insurance (Delta Dental), vision insurance (EyeMed), short-term and long-term disability insurance, and company-paid life insurance. Our 401(k) plan includes a voluntary pre-tax salary contribution that is available two months after your start date. We match 50% of your contribution, up to 6% of your compensation. 

      Paid time off is a crucial part of maintaining work and life balance. Our generous PTO plan accrues annually and begins with your first whole pay period. Eligible employees enjoy seven paid holidays and one floating holiday in addition to their regular PTO. 

      Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

      We believe our diversity of backgrounds, gender identities, ethnicities, and perspectives enables us to provide optimal care for our clients and a collaborative work environment. By practicing radical inclusivity, we draw on the strengths of all our employees to create a company culture that values all people. Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Council leads organizational efforts to deepen this culture and create space for healing and thoughtful discourse.

      Educational Opportunities

      As a national leader in eating disorder treatment, we are committed to encouraging career growth and providing our staff with robust clinical education. That’s why we partner with the University of Minnesota Medical School and have a team dedicated to providing ongoing education with in-house continuing education credit opportunities through webinars and in-person events. We continuously work to develop new education programs like our upcoming Behavioral Health Technician certification program.

      Given the nature of the work we do in specifically treating eating disorders, applicants currently in treatment for an eating disorder, recently in recovery from an eating disorder, or in long term recovery from an eating disorder should strongly consider if they can sufficiently separate their own eating disorder struggles from those of our clients in order to effectively intervene with clients, and whether this environment is conducive to their overall wellbeing. Applicants with these histories are strongly encouraged to consult with loved ones and their health care professionals prior to applying.
