Maryville Addiction Treatment Center Reviews

I don't understand why I cant get a phone call response about the condition of a family member. It's been a week,dont know if my brother is alive or dead!! I keep getting the run around,someone will email me on Sunday. That never happened! I don't even know the visiting hrs. I understand that there's a coronavirus rule in place.I dont understand why the receptionist would give you a day to expect a call.Then no one calls.So far I'm not impressed with this place
My husband was taken to the Emergency room from treatment. I received a short unprofessional phone call letting me know. I was asked if I’d like a call upon his return to the facility,which I answered definitely yes to. He was discharged from the er at 5 pm I spoke to him last at 7pm and no one had come for him yet. That was the last I heard from anyone. What kind of treatment center leaves an inpatient addict alone and unsupervised for more than 2 hours?! It’s the next day and I’ve heard nothing and after hours no one will tell you anything, as I called 6 times and left a message with their “after hours call center”. They make a nightmare of a situation worse. They lie and leave the family in the dark. The communication is horrible and very unprofessional. The facility is horrible. If you’re already stressed and anxious enough with the situation then keep your loved one away from Maryville!
Treatment, what treatment? This place was a ridiculous. I was there less than two weeks and then had to leave because funding stopped. In that time I think I saw a counselor once and she didn't seem to know much of anything. She seemed like she needed treatment herself tbh. The groups were either canceled shortened or led by the support staff who knew nothing about addiction. Mostly we watched movies or just smoked cigarettes. No books on AA, no phone calls, no therapy. A lot of the guys were sent from jail and just fooled around and the staff seemed to joke with them! Other people just up and walked off the site which is like in the middle of nowhere. I saw the doctor for less than 5 minutes during detox. It was crazy. I don't recommend.
The CIT’s are useless, except for handing out cigarettes during breaks. They don’t have classes or step classes. Instead they have meetings that the patients run themselves. During breaks, they allow you to watch movies, listen to music and play video games. Most of the movies that I saw playing had drugs, alcohol, cursing, and sex. Not appropriate when trying to get clean. I did opt to take Vivitrol, which is great for decreasing my cravings. Only half the staff acted professionally. This includes CIT’s, playing on the phone or using bad language. Nurses were either great, or nasty and terrible. When I complained about a problem I had with one of the bad nurses, the good ones knew exactly who they were. As far as the accommodations, small rooms, small uncomfortable beds, and broken bathrooms. No real amenities, except for one room everyone had to share. Bring a book or two, unless you want to hear loud rap music or watch bad movies. No gym, or exercise facilities. They did have a football game on the weekend. Sorry, they did have one table in the break room to play dominoes. Meals were ok. If you have any dietary conditions, beware. They try, but not very well. Nothing very tasty. During my time there, there was not one time that we were allowed to eat in the cafeteria on time. Always late, then rushed out in order to let the females come in for there meals. We had a 5 minute snack break to feed 45 men, and since you’re not allowed to bring food back, you would have to sneak it back. To tell you how much better you would be going somewhere else, one of my roommates said he had detox in county jail, and said accommodations, food, and staff were better there. He as well as most people were only there due to drug court and were mandated to be there. If you have insurance, and want to get clean, go elsewhere. Good luck !
A friend of mine just went to IOP at Maryville and had been clean for months. Working and doing the things that he should be doing. decided to take advice and do an intensive outpatient program. went to the program and started seeing videos of people using drugs and only with surrounded by people using and nothing uplifting or educational. I have not seen him so frustrated. I also went to the program about 20 years ago and felt exactly the same way. Frustrated and wanting to use with going to that program. The program needs to focus more on teaching people how to recover and not reminding them of how to use. You guys need more people who are educated on drug addiction and know what they're talking about. I never leave comments or ratings on businesses but something needs to be done for this program. it's very sad when someone who has been a lifelong drug user goes in and is upset because no one who works there put any effort force in helping besides his counselor.
