Referrals to academic and career opportunities within the community are provided to clients once treatment has been completed.

The reviewer felt that a strength of the facility was the clinical staff. When asked about facility weaknesses, she wrote, “Tyrannical CEO who fails to understand legal and ethical boundaries, safety, and quality assurance of clients and staff.” She also added that, “Clinical treatment at the house was professional and effective, as myself and the other staff coordinated to create an effective group and individual psychotherapy/counseling schedule. Unfortunately…business practices are at best, unethical, and at worst, illegal, compromising and manipulating a vulnerable and fragile population.”
