WHAT ALUMNI SAY
At the time of this writing there has been one alum polled by Best-rehabs.com. M.L.C., who’s between 40-59 years old, entered rehab for alcoholism following a family intervention. The alum selected this facility based on a personal choice, commenting that there was no charge for treatment and that there was a bed readily available. M.L.C. stayed for 61-90 days but did not complete the treatment before leaving due to medical reasons. M.L.C.. has been out of the facility for 6-12 months at the time of this writing, and indicated that she has maintained sobriety since leaving.
M.L.C. gave the facility two out of five stars for accommodations & amenities as well as for meals & nutrition. Otherwise, the alum gave mostly negative ratings and feedback on many metrics polled. She gave three stars for the facility’s cleanliness as well as the training and experience of the staff but only two stars for staff support and counselor availability, flexibility, and respect for clients at the facility.

In her written commentary, she added, “The counselor allowed 1 or 2 individuals to rule over the meetings and the house and was very biased, believing the lies fed to her.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Two loved ones have given facility feedback to Best-rehabs.com to date, one giving lukewarm responses and the other giving mostly positive responses.
