WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the five alumni surveyed by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing, two gave the facility positive reviews. Kelly awarded TTS five stars for its treatment effectiveness and wrote: “The skills I learned there taught me how to become successful in the real world I wouldn’t have been able to graduate college or have a good career that I do now.”
Sarah agreed, telling Best-rehabs.com: “Trinity was an amazing place for me to heal… The therapy I received was very individualized and my interventions were very good for me to help myself.”
But the other three alumni gave TTS just one or two stars for its treatment effectiveness. KMR wrote: “Don’t waste your money,” while Claire described the program as having “highly unprofessional staff and therapy strategies.” And Melanie complained about false advertising, writing: “There was no animal therapy. Their website touts a 98% success rate, but that is not what I saw. There are other treatment options that are safe, regulated by the government, and are much more suited to help a girl who is struggling. I am stronger today in spite of Trinity, not because of it.”
On Google, the facility received an average of 3.4 out of five stars based on 12 mixed reviews from both alumni and family.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Reviews from loved ones were split — of the four surveyed by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing, two gave the facility positive reviews and two gave the facility negative reviews. Kelsie and Michelle both warned parents not to send their children to TTS, with Michelle adding: “They do NOT solve any of the problems your teen is facing- in fact, they make them worse!”
Garry and Arnold, however– both of whom awarded the facility five stars for treatment effectiveness– each told Best-rehabs.com that TTS helped turn their child’s life around. Arnold wrote that he would highly recommend the facility, while Garry noted: “My daughter truly believes that the treatment at Trinity saved her life and her soul.”
