WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the two anonymous reviews submitted to Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing, both gave the facility four- and five-star ratings for the staff’s level of training and experience, facility cleanliness, and counseling options.
Both agreed that support from staff at Victory Clinical Services was superb. “The organization is larger and older than other facilities. It has a more ‘cooperate’ and reassuring feel which instills a seriousness in the patient to succeed,” one alum wrote. ”MMT is well documented and proven successful for both short and long term opioid addiction treatment,” the other anonymous alum wrote.

This place saved my life.” Former client J.W. added, “Not only is it intense substance abuse treatment, but my weekly required counseling sessions have been helping me tremendously with things I have struggled with for years.”
The facility’s website does not include treatment costs at the time of this writing; however, one alum surveyed by Best-rehabs.com indicated that they paid for treatment through a combination of self-pay, family support, state or federal insurance, and facility assistance.
