  • By far the best rehab I have been to out of a dozen. If u want to get better and are willing to do things for yourself stone haven sets you up to re-integrate back into society with a solid network and foundations. Its principle is that they want you to do things for yourself. So anyone who didn't get what they wanted out of it didn't put enough into it. They don't do things for you they motivate you to do it for yourself. And to be successful that's what addict.

  • Stonehaven is made to sound wonderful but it is NOT! The staff is just babysitters. No counseling. Extremely mismanaged. All you do is sleep, eat and smoke. The groups are repetitive. I would NEVER recommend anyone go there!
    I would not give them high marks. It seemed extremely mismanaged with no individual counseling or advocacy. I left Stonehaven with no place to live or treatment plan. And the councilors happily waved good bye to me knowing this. It's about money not patients.
