  • Absolute worst place I've ever experienced. They treated me like I was a test subject, gave me an inexperienced intern who recited textbook definitions and didn't know how to actually help anyone. Once I went to outpatient, I got a counselor who judged and ridiculed me personally. About one third of the class, in the class all relapsed in the 3 weeks I was there and all she did was give them pity. As for me. One time and I was banned along with getting charged extra for services I did not get or agree to. I was singled out, humiliated, brought down, and I came out of treatment feeling the worst I've ever felt in my life due to the way they treated me. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE! honestly purchasing a storage unit and locking myself in there would have done me better and saved me from 1,000 of charges. . Do not be surprised if you use them and 2 years later they are asking for thousands or hundreds because "labs just came in". If you do give them a chance, I'm sorry you couldn't learn from my mistake. Worst company I've ever dealt with.

  • Easily accessible for us. Everyone was super friendly. I felt they treated everyone with respect which is important. Often times the one with the addiction is talked down to.
