Met a lot of nice people and counselors who supported me. However, there was too much vaping and smoking, and cigarettes were incentivized. I have been free of cigarettes for eighteen years, and then picked them up again because of this place. I'm now struggling to quit. They promised a lot during the sales pitch that didn't come to fruition. It would have been nice to have been chosen for the EMDR treatment, but I think that because I was self pay, they saved it for the clients with bigger reserves of insurance dollars. The psychiatrist dropped the ball with me, as he kept me on a medication that was actually causing tardive dyskinesia and didn't meet with me before my discharge. I feel that they need to update their medical model beyond just the 12 steps and getting a sponsor. These things are helpful but they are no substitute for real medical treatment. Medications at the residence were clumsily distributed by BHTs, bless their hearts. The residence is also a half hour drive away from the facility, and it is surrounded by two rat infested abandoned buildings.

This facility is super sketchy. Had a friend that went there, she described it as feeling held hostage! If you leave against medical advice, they hold your stuff for 72 hours. Even your personal belongings, cell phone, credit cards etc. They do not involve family, you are allowed 2 min phone calls to family here or there. Living area is horribly dirty for a facility. My friend who went her daughter was in medical condition and her husband had called 3 times, they didn't relay the message to her at all. I myself have been to many treatment facilities and never have I ever experience something like this. Wouldn't recommend to anyone, if needing treatment, DO YOUR RESEARCH!

Obr horrible

    Obr go somewhere else, all they care about is ur insurance, lots of roaches, little spiders, nasty beds, alot of smoking, vaping,
