Areas of Specialization

  • Detox
    Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

Oh where do I begin .... this place lacks the simple act of communication !!! My husband was there for 8 days before i had spoken to a counselor. When I finally got his counselor on the phone he was extremely rude to me ! He spent more time arguing with me about phone calls that he supposedly made to me that were never made ! He informed me my husband was being released in a few days which in turn I questioned why I wasn't made aware. Turns out he was talking about a different patient !!!! He had my husband mixed up with someone else and was giving me that persons informafion!!!!! I spoke to a supervisor and was assured my husband was not being released and that he was doing well. I went to visit my husband a few days later and everything seemed to be going well. We had made plans to visit again : days later .. until I got a phone call the next day saying my husband was being transferred to a different facility an hour away. The biggest issue I have with this place is the fact that the woman in charge of handling my husbands disability paperwork "misplaced" of and never sent it to his job !! That in turn meant that my husband did not get a paycheck and I have to wait a month for his paycheck !!!! There was no apology just attitude given to me when I confronted this woman. This is an already stressful time and my husbands pay getting messed up just added more stress. I have 2 kids , a mortgage a car payment and bills that all need to be paid !!! To me this place spends more money making the facility into a luxury rehab than it does hiring trained competent people!!!!!
