  • The front desk staff were nice to my friend. However, my friend did not benefit from this rehab and relapsed shortly after leaving. I would not recommend this rehab to anyone. It cost too much money and the treatment was ineffective. My friend relapsed shortly after leaving treatment.

  • If you're worried about being discriminated against in any way, or need to feel secure, this facility is very under the radar and relaxing. It is also in a neighborhood, that's very friendly to people in hard times. They are very friendly and understanding of the diverse group of patients. Everything worked out, but the facility is in need of a repainting and some new windows.

  • One on one counseling, group meetings and activities were benefits of the facility. The one on one counseling is what benefited me the most, other than the group programs. The food however was not good and there was not a lot of personal time.

  • They need to be more concerned about the mental aspects of each individual. You needed to look at the mental part of me when you knew I wasn't able to take the meds you prescribed for withdrawal... because there are others. The people get you in quickly.

    It didn't help and I feel the staff wasn't well trained. His addiction is too strong and all of his friends use substances.
    Not much to share. It was recommended by my brother's doctor in order to receive a liver transplant. My brother wasn't really interested in getting treatment for alcoholism. It has helped many other people.

  • It is by all other definitions jail, and I suggest no one go to jail. I was court ordered BUT wanted the horrid life to end. Through AA and sessions, I found a path of honesty and recovery and it rocks.
