Areas of Specialization
Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY
At the time of this writing there were four alumni who were surveyed by a Rehabs.com poll. Alumni reviews gathered by Rehabs.com were generally positive, but none are particularly enthusiastic. One anonymous alum provided a perfect five-star rating for treatment effectiveness, but tempered it with criticism of the one-note treatment. “Good program but needs more counseling options,” they said. This respondent gave accommodation and amenities a rating of four out of five stars and meals and amenities three out of five stars. This respondent gave a rating of one out of five stars for holistic offerings and disagreed when asked if there were many counseling options to choose from depending on their preference. The respondent was neutral when asked if family/loved ones are able to participate in treatment through facility programming and if the facility offered a faith-based program. They also strongly agreed when asked if the connectivity and visitor policies were fair, whether the treatment was affordable, and whether that facility strictly followed a 12-step model
A.W., also an alum, awarded their treatment five stars out of five, but the accommodations and meals only three stars out of five. “Helped me get sober,” they wrote. AW wrote that they chose to attend rehab on their own accord and chose the facility based on a recommendation from a friend/family member. Their condition included dual diagnosis and did not involve pain medication. They. stayed at the facility for over 90 days and at the time of this writing have been gone from the facility for over 12 months after completing treatment. They entered sober/transitional living after leaving treatment. Their treatment was funded through the United Way.
One anonymous alum was less impressed than the other reviewers. Their three-star review noted a lack of LGBT inclusivity with the comment: “No gay counseling.” This reviewer gave treatment effectiveness three out of five stars, and a two out of five star rating for both accommodations and amenities, and meals and nutrition. This respondent disagreed when asked if the facility offered excellent leisure, exercise, and extracurricular options, was clean and well maintained, whether admissions and discharge procedures are swift, organized, and clearly explained, and whether they would recommend this facility to a friend or family member who was considering treatment. They strongly disagreed when asked if the facility had high quality holistic offerings and if the facility staff are experienced and well-trained.
According the facility’s website, the center accepts private insurance and issues some grant funding to individuals who qualify.
