ABOUT QUEST RECOVERY & PREVENTION SERVICES – WILSON HALL
One of five residential treatment facilities operated by Quest Recovery & Prevention Services (QRPS), Wilson Hall offers non-medical treatment for adult men struggling with chemical dependency. Located in Massillon, Ohio, eight miles west of Canton, Wilson Hall is a 24-bed, long-term residential program, as well as transitional housing for alumni. As a non-medical treatment facility, Wilson Hall does not provide detoxification services on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the facility’s website, upon admission, clients participate in an initial assessment to help clinicians determine individual client needs. The goal of treatment at Wilson Hall is to teach clients how to “live in a sober environment by identifying and changing their own behaviors with the guidance of their peers and staff.”
While immersed in the facility’s therapeutic community model of recovery, clients participate in a structured schedule of intensive group counseling sessions and individual therapy. Through these sessions, clients identify the link between irrational thinking and addictive behavior while expressing emotions and learning new coping strategies.
Along with counseling sessions, clients also attend educational workshops on addiction, substance abuse, and relapse prevention. Information sourced through a Best-rehabs.com survey also suggested that clients are introduced to the 12-step model of recovery.
Length of stay at the residential program does not exceed 120 days, and residents receive 30 hours of programming per week. According to the facility’s website, alumni who cannot obtain traditional, stable housing after treatment are also welcomed to stay at Wilson Hall as they seek and obtain full-time employment and permanent housing.
Although Wilson Hall does not hold outpatient-based programs on-site, QRPS does offer outpatient programs in the area. Residential alumni may be encouraged to utilize an intensive outpatient program (IOP) as a “step-down” service. IOP typically requires attending counseling sessions and educational classes three to five days per week.
The center’s website indicates the treatment team includes certified drug and alcohol counselors (CDAC) and licensed professional counselors (LPC). A support team also helps with day-to-day operations of the residential program.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The facility’s website indicates the 24-bed facility houses men in shared, dorm-style rooms. Although specific information is scarce regarding amenities and accommodations, one loved one polled by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing described the building as “not maintained or updated.”
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
At the time of this writing, Best-rehabs.com has not received any alumni reviews of the facility. However, reviews on secondary review sites are mostly negative.
The two individuals who left reviews for the treatment center on Google Reviews at the time of this writing both provided one out of five stars. “A percentage of the “counselors” have absolutely no business being counselors. They are under-qualified and tend to use “confrontational” techniques and they just don’t work,” an alum wrote.
The two individuals who left reviews on Citehealth at the time of this writing provided mixed reviews. One anonymous reviewer gave the facility one out of five stars for its staff. “You are made to depend on other patients as your main source of recovery, while for many they are just learning the recovery process themselves,” the alum wrote.
However, another former client awarded the facility a five-star rating for its overall effectiveness on Citehealth. “The staff is caring and very professional. It’s a TC or Theraputic Communty, which means the residents are also the teachers. I had an amazing experience here and would recommend anybody serious about recovery to go here,” the alum wrote.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The three loved ones polled by Best-rehabs.com to date generally approved of the facility.
Although one loved one did feel accommodations could improve, they gave four out of five stars when asked if they would recommend the treatment center. “my loved one has been sober for sometime after treatment. they have a great transition program,” the loved one wrote.
Another loved one offered a low one-star rating for the facility’s level of family participation. However, they gave a five-star rating for the treatment staff’s level of training and experience, describing staff as “nice and helpful.”
“My son went through this program and it saved his life. He will be sober/clean for almost seven years now. I can never be thankful enough for this program,” another loved one wrote.
