It’s all about our people.

It’s our mission to support our patients every step of the way, and providing our best-in-class services is only possible because of our incredible team members.

Just as we care for our patients, we care for our team. We’ve developed a warm, welcoming culture. We pride ourselves on cultivating and empowering our team members to become leaders in our industry.

We provide our employees with exceptional benefits and the opportunity to grow through training and continuing education credits via Horizon University. Genuinely invested in our collective future, Horizon also contributes additional money to our team members’ student loan payments.

Our Benefits

We are committed to our team members and offer a variety of perks and benefits promoting wellness, continuing education, financial security, and a work-life balance.

We believe in fostering a culture of continuous learning and growth. Our learning hub, Horizon University, offers a blend of training, skill-building, mentoring, and professional development experiences designed to enhance your expertise and career trajectory. From specialized workshops to advanced training opportunities, we’re committed to fostering your success every step of the way.

Horizon University offers personalized onboarding training programming for each of our team members as well as a growing electives training catalog of over 300 unique courses. Employees can access a diverse range of courses, resources, and tools to further their skills, expand their knowledge base, and explore additional career growth opportunities.

Horizon University is an approved education provider of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for the following professions:

  • Licensed Master/Clinical Social Workers (LMSW/LCSW) Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHC)
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT) Licensed Creative Arts Therapists (LCAT)

Horizon reimburses full-time employees for all fees incurred and paid during employment associated with the initial and/or renewal of a licensure or credentialing process for qualifying health professionals (QHP). You’ll receive reimbursement on the first anniversary of passing your exam.

Through a student loan repayment platform, Peanut Butter, Horizon offers qualified team members up to $600 per year toward student loans.

There’s no maximum contribution limit either. Work with Horizon for five years, and we will contribute at least $3,000 toward your student loans.

But wait, there’s more! Horizon employees in all positions are eligible for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program, so you can do good for yourself while doing good for others. PSLF allows qualifying Federal student loans to be forgiven after 120 qualifying payments while working for a qualifying employer like Horizon.

Additional Federal Loan Repayment Programs through the NHSC are also available for clinical and even some paraprofessional positions at eligible clinics. These generous programs offer loan repayment awards of $50K – $100K or more in exchange for service commitments to do the lifesaving work you were already committed to doing. It’s a win-win!

Our internships provide extensive supervision and training opportunities for all students. All accepted students will attend Intern Mingle Orientation to prepare for a successful internship experience. We enjoy partnering with colleges and universities to allow students to gain hands-on experience in the behavioral health field.
