  • The staff is very supportive while being honest about your addiction. I felt some of the patients there were not actually there for treatment. They were just trying to get credit for the court system and the attention given to these people hinder the clients who are actually trying to recover. My overall experience was beneficial to being able to stay in recovery when I was able to go home. I have since leaving been clean.
