Gosnold on Cape Cod Reviews

If you’re in trouble, go there, they will save your life. The RA’S & nurses are there right next to you. They are real!! They will tell you how it is they’re not full of shit in the toilet nicely bluntly trust and rely on them
Let me start off by saying this: Just because your loved one didn’t get it this time around is not the fault of this facility. They do their damndest & the staff care about the patients. Wasn’t even going to leave a review but I’m just blown away by the inaccurate criticisms by family members of former Gosnold patients. Top notch food, accommodations are a bit dated but nothing awful. Beautiful locations. Tranquil atmosphere & smoke breaks are allowed. I don’t know what else y’all want from a place. The IOP program was amazing & I had great aftercare. It took three tries but now I’m at nearly 3 years sober & it is all because of this facility.
I greatly benefited from my time at Gosnold this past spring and would like to share a little feedback if it might help others. The journey is tough, but I’ve been to two other programs and this time it finally made sense.
In a perverse way it works it was so bad I never want to go back and will hopefully stay sober. Food good medical care good but the patients run the facility and those in charge look the other way. Many clients have the choice between Gosnold and the street. Its better then being homeless
Very unprofessional. Run by people in "recovery," who don't seem to have the education needed to understand how the brain and nervous system work. Addicts are usually very selfish people, and without proper knowledge, may delve deeper into the world of "all about me." Self-focus is not what an addict needs. Dwelling on themselves is what took them down. Depression/anxiety/narcists/socialiopathetic disorders are selfish disorders. Those in recovery are still wrapped around their own issues and thus "helping," an addict to overcome their problem is unhealthy. They may sit and commensurate, but that is not what it takes to move an addict out of addiction. This facility is not a place for your loved one to move forward in my experience, they are making worse choices by being here.
