ABOUT KEYSTONE TREATMENT CENTER

Located on 30 acres of land overlooking the South Dakota plains, Keystone Treatment Center provides medical detox, residential, and outpatient treatment for adults and adolescents 13 and older who are struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment is gender-separate and gender-specific, and course descriptions indicate that it’s heavily based on the 12-Steps. There are specialized treatment tracks for Native Americans, young adults, and Christians, and those struggling with gambling, opioid dependence, chronic pain, and methamphetamine addiction.

The adult program includes individual, group, and family therapy, experiential therapies, and medication management. A young adult program, for those aged 18 to 26, offers groups on topics including dating, peer pressure, and family problems.

Adolescent treatment for those ages 13 to 18 adds extra experiential therapy, including a ropes course and social training. A licensed teacher helps clients with schoolwork.

Outpatient options (offered from a separate facility in Sioux Falls) include a four-week partial hospitalization program (PHP), an adult intensive outpatient program (IOP) lasting six to eight weeks, and an adolescent IOP. All outpatient programs focus on the 12-Steps.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

According to the facility’s website, staff includes psychiatrists, psychologists, doctors, nurses, social workers, licensed therapists and counselors, and pastors. The staff’s level of training and experience received an average rating of 4.64 stars, based on 11 reviews.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

According to the facility’s website, amenities include an on-site sweat lodge. Reviewers tended to give high ratings for the facility’s cleanliness (which averaged 4.55 stars based on 11 reviews), but many said the center was run-down.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Of the 15 alumni reviews submitted to Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, eight were positive and the remainder were mixed or negative. The staff’s level of experience, the level of family participation, and the treatment’s affordability won the highest ratings, while the facility’s connectivity policies and its holistic and counseling options fared more poorly.

The positive reviewers often described feeling accepted and said the program worked for them. One wrote anonymously: “It’s like have a big family.” And Chuck praised “their due diligence in treating people like normal people… and not some disease riddled leper.”

Yet many reviewers described the facility as very run-down, and many said there simply weren’t enough staff. “It is a rundown place with mostly patients that are thugs who are only there to avoid jail,” one anonymous reviewer wrote. E.B. added: “Due to the large numbers, patients are not getting the needed counseling.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Half of the eight reviews submitted to Rehabs.com by loved ones at the time of this writing were positive. Like alumni, loved ones tended to give high ratings for the staff’s level of experience and the family programming. Their comments painted a picture of a fairly basic, though serviceable treatment program. Praise was awarded to the counseling options as well as the nurses and doctors. “Keystone is more than adequate,” an anonymous reviewer wrote. Yet they added that they would have liked more holistic options and a longer length of stay.

It’s worth noting that a few reviewers had outright negative experiences. Sherri noted that the promised Native American program fell short, and the staff treated clients poorly. And Helen wrote: “Poor supervision untrained counsellors. No communication with parents.”

FINANCING

According to the facility’s website, many insurers are accepted, including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and United. The 11 reviewers polled at the time of this writing gave the facility’s affordability an average rating of 4.27 out of five.

They had great services for expanding and practicing spirituality. The building was not a very good building. Had a low number of staff. Food was not good tasting. The staff were disrespectful and they need to broaden their chemical dependency issues activities. There was repetition a lot. The food was poor as well.

Official Facility Response

My wife went there for 30 days, counselors said she was clean and and would be sober. Concerned I asked if they were positive. They told me yes, my wife was good to go. Less than 3 days later it was like she had never even been there. There (Treatment center) is not for someone who really needs help. But they are on top of collecting money.

The facility is outdated. They allow too many men to check in, which overloads their nurses and counselors. Due to the large numbers, patients are not getting the needed counseling (individual). They have caring and educated members that work there. They need to limit the number so quality of care can be increased and update the old building. Rooms smell and look very run down.

The food could use some work. More healthy options would be nice such as fresh vegetables on the salad bar.

Antiquated outdated former run down college campus! I met prisoners in here that wanted to go back to the State Penitentiary rather than do their time in this horrible place. I was there in the Winter and the "world class running track" was under 3 feet of snow. "Fitness Center" was a broke down Universal machine that sat in the corner of session room. It was never repaired in the 30 days I was in Keystone. Beds are a dukes-mixture of old hospital beds and roll-aways. Weekends was short staffed and the patients literally ran the place for the most part! Its all about the almighty dollar at Keystone.. if they can save a penny at your expense they certainly will! The only good things I have to say about this treatment center is the sweat lodge is unique and deeply spiritual and the food was a pleasant surprise. Expect to be herded with a group of teen aged gangsters for the most part from the "Juvy-Unit" ...they were constantly disrupting classes and raiding the fridge in the adult unit. Someone needs to do a special investigation of this place because it is as bad as it gets.. and then some!

They are very deliberate in their counseling. However, they are are quite expensive. I was there and had a good experience. They even did numerous follow up calls to make sure I was doing well.

They have a high success rate; however, the waiting list is a downfall. I loved the AA or NA meetings we had every night. There was always a good speaker.

As an atheist, the whole AA thing doesn't work for me. It is a rundown place with mostly patients that are thugs who are only there to avoid jail.

I believe a longer stay than 30 days is needed for maximum result. I would prefer a treatment facility with more exposure to leisure activities, physical exercise options/facilities and information coupled with practice in diet, meditation,yoga and other holistic health options. Depending on the age, gender, type and severity of their addiction this facility would serve some well, some would need a different facility for the greatest chance of recovery. I believe treatment is most effective in a gender specific facility and additionally my comments above. The choice of this facility was based on availability (few choices in this state), cost, insurance coverage and what our family member would commit to for treatment time. Keystone is more than adequate for treatment, they have qualified counselors and encourage family involvement. I don't know what their recovery rates is however it is one of 2 primary court ordered treatment centers for our state so that creates a different patient emotional investment than some other facilities. My preference would have been a 60-90 day inpatient facility followed by a 30-60 day halfway house.

Their approach is non confrontational and in a manner of an AA/ NA group that is more like camp. If I were to need this place again, they would welcome me with open arms and treat me like every other lost soul that goes there, like family. If you are from Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin or from anywhere else, there is no difference in the way you are treated. Keystone Recovery has the strongest rating in my book due to their due diligence in treating people like normal people (is there such a thing as normal) and not some disease riddled leper. ... I love this place, Keystone has given me the tools to take back MY LIFE.

We had 5 group meetings per day. I enjoyed our leisure activities but I felt that the staff could have been more supportive and the facility could have offered more holistic opportunities.
