    Vista Taos was an incredible experience for me. The staff was very professional and my counselor was the bomb!! The family program was also awesome! The counselors helped me resolve problems with my family that we had struggled with for YEARS!! I can't say enough good things about my experience at Vista. I am a totally new person because of my sobriety and I could NOT have done it without Vista. I know because I had tried, and TRIED to get sober on my own. SO grateful for my sobriety and SO, SO grateful for Vista Taos!!! Oh, and the food was super delicious! .

  • Place stinks. You have to pay for the treatment by the 3rd week. After that they want you to leave so someone else can have ur bed. No 21 day or 30 day stay here. Of all the individuals that were there while I was, relapsed, Me included. I kept in touch with most every one. so I know. Go here and you will be spitting against the wind. Just send your money to me instead! By the way, by keeping in touch with all the people there are only 2 of us who are now together and for several years. We helped each other which is a great thing. Love her and she's my rock. Understand Vista Taos did nothing for either one of us. And we were 2 of the people kicked out to open beds and pull in income for two poor soles begging for help!
    I have worked in the addiction treatment field first as a counselor, now 20+ years as an addiction psychiatrist. I have experience with a large number of treatment facilities and I have learned that no matter how good a program is, it absolutely depends on the quality of the staff. Unfortunately, this field has a way of attracting less than quality providers. Your comment suggests that your experience at Vista dates back several years. I was asked to become Medical Director to assist in making Vista Taos a premier facility for healing both patients and families struggling with alcoholism and related drug addictions. This can only occur when everyone employed shares a similar dedication to caring for those that come to us. Our Executive Director, Clinical Director, Spiritual Leader, Nursing Manager, from intake, house keeping to dietary - they are all united in providing quality, ethical healing in one of the most beautiful environments I have ever seen. What you experienced is common in some treatment programs but I came to Vista 18 months ago with the understanding that it would not happen here. The staff at Vista Taos has changed a great deal over the past several years and now is without doubt among the best I have ever worked with. We just celebrated our first annual Gratitude Gathering for Alumni and I was overwhelmed with the outpouring of emotion from attendees and staff for what Vista Taos has become. This is a special place and I am grateful to be a part of it.
