WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Alumni reviews were mixed. Of the 17 former clients polled by Best-rehabs.com to date, 13 shared mostly positive feedback while four did not. Collectively, satisfied alumni described the staff as compassionate, encouraging, and readily available. Two alumni, Jennifer and S.H., credited Keystone with saving their lives. “I feel like I owe my life to Keystone. I was a resident at the facility for 3 months….Keystone gave me tools to deal with life on life terms,” wrote S.H. in a representative statement. “Keystone provided me the tools needed to live a life of sobriety,” added R.D.T.
Critiques from the disgruntled included ineffective treatment, high costs, and misleading information on insurance coverage. “I was highly disappointed with the effectiveness of the youth program,” S.J. told Best-rehabs.com. “It is based solely on time, not on progress.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Three of the four loved ones surveyed by Best-rehabs.com to date also shared positive feedback. While B.W.J. found the women’s program “exceptional,” others told of a caring and respectful staff. C.T., much in contrast, reported encountering a staff member who was “very judgmental and had ‘poor’ people skills.”
