WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The six alumni polled by Best-rehabs.com to date provided the women’s program with mediocre reviews. The center’s major strength appeared to be its family program and inclusion of children in the residential recovery process. “I think it is wonderful how much they work with pregnant women and women with children,” wrote Lori in a representative review.
However the facility received a low average rating of 2.3 out of five stars for its leisure activities, and the five former clients surveyed about the program’s holistic offering provided an average rating of just 1.6 stars. “It was pretty generic. All the way down to the food and the extra curricular activities,” wrote Anna in a representative review.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The two friends surveyed by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing offered positive feedback. Both respondents indicated that their loved one stopped engaging in addictive or harmful behavior after attending the program, and noted that they were able to play an active role in their loved one’s treatment process. “It is a familiar and successful facility with great success rates of graduates,” wrote one of the reviewers.
According to, the women’s program accepts military insurance and state insurance other than Medicaid.
