WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The three loved ones surveyed by Best-rehabs.com were unanimous in their negative opinions of the facility and its treatment. The two respondents who were polled regarding the program’s treatment effectiveness provided just one star, and D.H., the third respondent, characterized the facility as “a joke.” While D.H. admitted that they encountered “a few good counselors,” Mike and S.F.T.W. complained about communication problems with the staff that impacted the care their loved ones received. “They will tell you and promise you everything before you commit your loved one. Then suddenly they treat you as if you don’t exist,” Mike wrote. S.F.T.W. noted that employees failed to return calls and “do not pay attention to the patients nor do they hold themselves accountable for when things happen in the facility with patients.”
Lori, the single reviewer on Yellowpages.com, also provided the facility with a rating of one out of five stars. She noted inappropriate housing facilities, “questionable” treatment, and a lack of communication with the staff. “We decided to pull our son immediately, but were blocked for over a day by this organization, who conveniently ‘lost’ him. No one knew where he was for an entire day, including … a director.”
