WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The two alumni responding polled by Best-rehabs.com gave positive reviews. Four- and five- out of five-star ratings were left for the staff’s level of training and experience, treatment effectiveness, affordability, and cleanliness. Both alumni said they would recommend the facility to others. “This is where I got my life back,” wrote alum Robert, adding: “Taught me how to live life like an adult with life on life terms.”
Despite praised for numerous metrics, both alumni rated the facility’s holistic offerings and exercise and leisure options poorly, not giving either metric a rating above three stars. “The staff and food are great,” an anonymous alum wrote, but said that the facility needed, “more options for things to do and a little more freedom with the choices.”
