WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The two alumni surveyed by Best-rehabs.com to date provided mixed feedback regarding their experiences at Pocatello Clinic.
The alumni gave the facility’s cleanliness four- and five-star ratings. One anonymous alum noted that while it was a “good, clean facility” and the counselors were positive and willing to listen, it was overcrowded and did not offer individualized treatment. “For instance, group classes would contain people with all different types of substance abuse. It would have been nice to be with people that had similar addictions to me,” they wrote.
The alumni gave four- and five-star ratings for the staff’s level of training and experience and three- and four- star ratings for the facility’s holistic treatment options.
The other alum gave the facility four out of five stars for treatment effectiveness and noted that the facility “got me off the pills and taught me coping skills,” but also complained that it was too expensive.
According to the facility’s website, the Clinic accepts some private insurance, as well as BPA (state funded), IDOC (Department of Corrections), and Medicaid funded clients.
