WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The pair of alumni surveyed by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing shared excellent feedback and ratings. Both granted Naaman Center five out of five stars for counseling options, family participation, and dual diagnosis treatment. A metric measuring overall treatment effectiveness received four and five stars respectively. Of 15 points of evaluation, only holistic therapy offerings and affordability received moderate ratings of three stars.

Reviews across secondary sites were similarly positive. The sole Yellowpages.com reviewer gave Naaman Center in Elizabethtown five out of five stars, applauding the helpful staff. He noted that the facility was busy, but “one of the best.”[1] On the center’s official Facebook page, which its staff may be able to monitor, one five-star reviewer characterized Naaman as nonjudgmental. “I was accepted for me without proving myself,” John wrote. Six additional individuals left five-star ratings with no written commentary.[2] Likewise on Google, three of four ratings were for four or five out of five stars and none included details.[3]

Countering the positive trend were two out of three CiteHealth reviewers who both rated the Center just one of five stars. One criticized an over-reliance on medication-assisted treatment rather than an abstinence approach. A third reviewer, granting five stars, indicated long-term involvement with Naaman Center, seeming to corroborate some kind of maintenance program, which is not noted on the facility’s website. The positive reviewer also praised the staff.[4]
