ABOUT MAPLE LEAF TREATMENT CENTER
Set among some of Vermont’s most scenic foothills, Maple Leaf Treatment Center offers both residential and outpatient treatment for adult men and women struggling with substance abuse. Treatment for co-occurring mental health conditions is also available, and clients have access to medical detox services on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Maple Leaf Treatment Center treats addiction as a disease, combining 12-step principles with evidence-based programming and medical care. An initial assessment occurs via a 30-minute phone call, and potential clients are notified of their admission status within 48 hours. During intake, clients meet with a primary counselor to develop an individualized plan and medical staff to determine whether medically monitored detoxification is necessary.
Clients can expect a mix of group and individual counseling, life skills workshops, addiction education, gender-specific process groups, and 12-step meetings. Families participate in treatment through weekend-long family education programs and family counseling sessions.
The facility offers outpatient treatment through its Bridge Program, which provides weekly therapy services and medication management to recent residential graduates. The program is designed to assist clients in the transition from inpatient treatment to community-based outpatient care.
The facility’s treatment team is led by a doctor of clinical psychology. Other key staff members include master’s level counselors, a case manager, and a registered nurse.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The facility is set on 78 acres near the slopes of Mt. Mansfield. Surrounding wooded trails and a nearby brook and pond create a peaceful atmosphere for reflection and recovery. Smoking is allowed in designated areas, but the center provides smoking cessation support.
Alumni polled by Rehabs.com provided above average ratings for accommodations and cleanliness, with most offering ratings of four out of five stars. Multiple alumni commented on the quality of the meals.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The six alumni reviews collected by Rehabs.com were mostly positive, though there were some outliers. In general, former clients found the staff to be, as one anonymous alum wrote: “good people that are really trying to help you.” More than one alum commented on the well-maintained facility and beautiful natural surroundings, with ratings for cleanliness and accommodations of four out of five stars or higher across the board. “It really helped me a lot and gave me the courage to go on and the dignity to survive,” one anonymous alum wrote.
The four alumni polled on metrics such as the staff’s level of training and experience, cleanliness, and whether they would recommend treatment at Maple Leaf Farms all gave four out of five stars. Lower average ratings were given to aspects of treatment such as exercise options (3.5 stars), holistic offerings (2.5 stars), connectivity (3.75 stars), family participation (2.75 stars), counseling options (2.75 stars), and affordability (3.25 stars).
Wanda, a Rehabs.com survey respondent, disliked that she was assigned a male counselor. She submitted a five-star review, but wrote: “When a person has issues with men you don't give her a man for a counselor.” Alum Ron only gave one star for treatment effectiveness, noting his preference for Alcoholics Anonymous’ Big Book teachings. Other complaints touched upon the high cost of treatment and a lack of on-site recreational activities.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Reviews from loved ones were more mixed. Two family members provided five out of five star ratings, crediting the program for their loved one’s sobriety. M.R. told Rehabs.com: “They gave my granddaughter the help that she needed and a great support system. She has been clean for over 4years.” And an anonymous reviewer praised the care their mother received, writing: “They taught her coping skills and ways to think differently to keep her on the path of sobriety.”
Sarah, a one-star reviewer, noted an “above average” failure rate. She felt that the program’s rigidity was a downfall, writing: “If 12 step model isn't for you. You are stuck.”
WHAT STAFF SAY
Staff reviews are limited, but the one employee who submitted to Rehabs.com was critical of the management. J.L.T. wrote: “I fel the facility is poorly managed, little or no support is given to staff … Plus few of them actually are in recovery and thus don't really understand the nature of alcoholism andor addiction.”
There is currently no specific information available on pricing via the facility's website. Maple Leaf Treatment Center works with several insurance carriers, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, MVP, CIGNA, ValueOptions, AETNA, and United HealthCare. Additionally, financing is available through M-Lend Finance.
