  • Beware of this place! My loved one was kicked out & parent not notified for 2 hours later. The young girl walked on a highway & waited 4 hours for parent to drive there! They did not notify the parent until 2 hours after daughter kicked out. They would not allow the daughter to stay on the property because they didnt want the other patients to know she was kicked out! Anything could have happened to the young girl. She had no phone & no money! Absolutely unacceptable!

  • I successfully completed the 28 day program. Never gone to rehab, I didn't know what to expect. Full day helpful sessions, good food, personal counselors, caring medical staff, and weekend activities helped me focus on the present instead of missing home. But here again, I WANTED help...I was never ORDERED to attend. If you are on the fence about treatment, THIS FACILITY IS THE ONE to enter.
    Amazing care...I walked in scared to death only to find how nice and welcoming everyone was! I was only there for detox but the care was exceptional and around the clock. Recommend this to anyone and everyone. Strict but only to a certain extent..mainly to prevent any infiltration of substances possibly brought in by patients. Most of the employees were addicts at one time and gave honest advice based on experience! I wish I could have afforded to stay for the whole 28 days but just the 5 days of detox I was there gave me an understanding of how important it is to get help if you need it. Would like to thank each and everyone there that I had an encounter with for being a smiling face and uplifting me to better myself. Great food, smoking if needed, and top of the line care! I felt as if I was a guest in there home. The groups and reading material can guide anyone that really wants to get clean and stay clean gives you a sense of hope and how to analyze certain situations and disorders and how to manage them. A++ . Stay clean and get the help you need at mount Regis recovery and health!
    This place is so wonderful. My husband was there 4 yrs ago and unfortunately now my daughter is there. This is the place to go for "help"! They have food available 24/7. They allow patients to call home 4 days a week. They have the nicest staff. I could go on & on about how great this place is! They do activities w/the patients & take them to a gym. They go off campus to meetings. Again, i highly recommend Mount Regis. You won't be disappointed in their facilty or services. The only thing that i would change is to have their family visitation on the weekend b/c most people work during the week but its a small sacrifice to make to know my loved one is getting the helo they so deperately need.

  • Meals were great, Staff was wonderful. I only attended IOP and it was not as beneficial to me as AA meetings were. I went in one day and my insurance would not allow me to stay, I came back the next day and they allowed me to stay for 24 hours. The staff was very nice, the food was wonderful, the facilities were for the most part nice, I think for an overall experience it is a great place to start this journey.

  • Easy to be accepted as a patient. False advertising, unable to care for person with medical problems such as type 1 diabetes. Admission was coordinated by hospital, we were told they could care for person with type 1 diabetes, which they could not, sent daughter to ER 3 times eventually admitted to ICU with DKA , then they would not have ake her back stating she was " too sick " to be there

  • I had a friend of 25 years attend this facility. He truly did not want to change when he went and he was kicked out of the program for breaking their rules. Now he is serving a 10 year prison sentence for drug related charges. Lesson to be learned: Play by the rules, change your own life. It is in a good location for people in need. However, it is too expensive.

  • Mount Regis was there to help me through my addiction to alcohol. I needed a place to get over my addiction and start over. I learned that alcohol wasn't my friend it was my enemy. The counselors were very nice and seemed to understand what i was going through. They had a good, solid 12 step program. However, there was not enough interaction with family and there was not family counseling offered, that my daughter and I could have benefited from.

    At first there was improvement but then my spouse relapsed due to an inability to deal with work related stress. I think he needed longer term treatment, but the insurance refused to pay for him to stay any longer. And he got to where he did not want to continue to see the out patient counselor, and quit going to AA meetings. At the time it seemed like a really good facility. It has been many years so I am not sure how it is now.

    The person entering treatment must want to get better; if not, the facility cannot do it for them. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

  • I received exactly what I needed to remain sober,and was introduced to a 12 step program. Its not a Spa, its a recovery house and a damn good one. All its employ are in recovery and really understand what an addict is going through.

  • My time at Mt. Regis was incredibly helpful. Unfortunately, it wasn't nearly as helpful for many people who went there. I believe this is because many of the clients who were there when I was were required to come because of legal consequences or occupational consequences. Overall, I enjoyed my time there and learned a lot. Families were invited to attend at least one visit with me and my counselor.
