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.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

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.”

FINANCING

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.

good people that are really trying to help you.

I fel the facility is poorly managed, little or no support is given to staff and many staff members (not myself) were terminated because of personality conflicts versus acutla poor performance. There is a clique running the facility that are not qualified and knuckle under to patient whims. Plus few of them actually are in recovery and thus don't really understand the nature of alcoholism andor addiction.

counseling sessions geared toward the individual and the family was great, but as always cost treatment is so expensive but everywhere not just here. It really helped me a lot and gave me the courage to go on and the dignity to survive

Organized, structured groups and activities. Meals were nutritious. Mental health counseling was effective. Poor staffing at times. The facility is clean and the staff is caring and courteous.

This could have changed, but when a person has issues with men you don't give her a man for a counselor.

Staff was very caring. The problem as I see it now. I did not then. I went to rehab thinking I would get the answers to recovery. I thought I had.. with all the scientific teaching they had. But most of it relies on Self Will and it states very clearly in the A.A. Big Book, that no human power can relieve me of my alcoholism. I tried my way over and over and over, before and after rehab. My self will to not give in to the cravings was not working, Why? Because i have an allergy to Alcohol. I can no more stop the spread of cancer in my body by self will than I can Alcoholism. Also Not everyone who abuses alcohol is an alcoholic! In the Chapter "More About Alcoholism" speaks of this question,what is an alcoholic? The problem that I see today, is the readiness to believe there is an easy way out! Who wants to do the work that is suggested in the Big book as a way to recovery. It is hard! but ask ask a real alcoholic who has done it the way it is suggested in the Big Book,they will tell you how for years they just went to meetings, made coffee, fellowship, rehab after rehab and could not figure out what was missing. It simply is the 12 steps to recovery and to continue to work the later steps,10,11, 12, on a daily basis. We have for gotten so much from our divinely inspired book. Yes, most will argue this is not the only way to recover. Yes, I agree, but back to the chapter, more about alcoholism, if you are a real alcoholic, you must do the work. I would suggest a rehab as a place to get away from alcohol, where you can detox from it and take advantage of the time and start immediately with someone who had worked the steps as laid out in the big book.

Persistence...but the failure rate is above average. Rigidity is a downfall. They do their best with limited means. If 12 step model isn't for you. You are stuck.

They helped my Mom get sober and she went to other treatment centers before and relapsed. They taught her coping skills and ways to think differently to keep her on the path of sobriety. I do know the place itself is really hard to get to. My mother was admitted to Maple leaf about 2 years ago, she stayed there for several months and when she went in she was addicted to heroin, the treatment and ways that they consoled her were top notch. She came out the person I knew before she started using and has been sober ever since. I'm truly happy there are places like Maple Leaf Farms in this world. They gave me my mom back and I'm forever greatful.
