Compensation and Benefits

Offering More Than Just a Job

Root Center for Advanced Recovery is serious about our purpose of empowering courage in patients. But that kind of commitment to the cause means that we must hire and retain top talent, which is why the Root Center offers generous compensation for all employees and benefit packages for those who work a minimum of 20 hours per week.

We believe in caring for the whole individual, so our compensation package not only monetarily rewards performance but also helps to ensure health and wellness for our staff.
