  • Strengths: Dual capable facility. Excellent quality of mental health professionals in addition to recovering counselors. Weaknesses: Funded by the state so dicted by stringent guidelines for financial compliance. The staff at this facility genuinely care about the individual in need and often go above and beyond their job descriptions to help others.

  • It is a very short in house treatment facility not long enough to keep the patient sober after treatment. Group sessions were a strength of the facility, but a weakness was a lack of competent counselors.

  • Focused on self accountability for success or failure and they provide you with all the tools to do either, if you fail, you did not use all the tools available to you. The only weakness I saw was not really a flaw, but a preference. When you are withdrawing from drugs, I feel caffeine is a vice, but not an addiction and they would not allow caffeinated products in facility. They took in my son, who has now been clean and sober for 120 days! The first time in over 20 years he has stayed clean and on the right path. They teach them skills to cope, they are blunt with the patients and make them look at who is responsible for their addiction and who is the one that can end it. (only themselves) They were strict and structured and helped him in every way they could. He has never succeeded before ad has tried, this place works! I have referred others there and will continue to do so. I wasn't there 24/7, but whatever they are doing...it works!

  • The Short Term Treatment program was very structured and strict. This was exactly what I needed at the time. They did not allow for a lot of outside communication. This allowed me to focus on myself and prepare for the real world.
