ABOUT THE GABLES
Located near downtown Rochester in southeastern Minnesota, The Gables offers residential alcohol and drug abuse treatment exclusively for adult women. Co-occurring mental health issues are also addressed. Detox services are not offered on-site, thus clients must be medically cleared before beginning treatment.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The Gables’ treatment philosophy follows the concept of chemical addiction as a whole-person illness. Group therapy is the primary treatment method used, though individual counseling is available depending upon client need. Group therapy topics include relationships and co-dependency, self-esteem and mental health issues, body image and nutrition, sober living and parenting skills, and relapse prevention. Although the therapeutic focus is the 12-step model, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is also offered. Participants can also access outside parenting skills groups.
Families are incorporated into treatment through family therapy, and a formal family program brings in consulting family therapists to provide monthly lectures, discussion, and counseling sessions. Medium and low-intensity programs are offered as step-down services after primary residential care is completed.
Staff at The Gables includes a medical director, a psychologist, and a consulting psychiatrist, as well as licensed chemical dependency counselors, chemical dependency technicians, nurses, a dietician, and spirituality consultants.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The 30-bed facility houses residents in a refurbished Tudor-style mansion originally built in 1912. All clients share rooms with at least two roommates. Meetings, group therapy, and all other activities, including meals and leisure activities, are also held at this location.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The Gables has received mixed feedback from the eight alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing. Three of these former clients awarded the facility five stars for treatment effectiveness and two gave mediocre three-star ratings for this metric. While four alumni surveyed on the overall quality of group counseling gave high-ratings, two out of the four indicated the quality of individual counseling may be lacking. “Individual counseling was very helpful, only wish I could have done that more often,” C.T. wrote. Though the four alumni agreed meals were top-notch, they were more mixed on impressions of the staff level of training and support with averages of 3.5 and 3.25 stars, respectively.
While Amanda wrote “the counselors were incredible,” several alumni complained of a lack of individualized, personalized attention from staff. Marlene told Rehabs.com that “they are just so over booked with clients. You don't get that one on one help.” An alum named K added, “I felt staff was more concerned with keeping the owner of the house happy and pacified, than ensuring that each client was treated and cared for as an individual.”
Two alumni also mentioned a heavy focus on time spent cleaning and maintaining the facility as part of the program. “They are focused on us maintaining the old house more than our recovery,” R.B. wrote. Three alumni also complained about the director of the facility. K wrote that they employed a “very shame based manner using large group confrontations and forced public confessions with threats of being kicked out.”
WHAT STAFF SAY
M.A.K., the one staffer surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, gave The Gables five stars for each metric measured, including overall quality of care, willingness to put patients’ interests first, and staff level experience. “Generally everything is awesome there,” the staff member wrote.
According the facility's website, The Gables accepts most insurance and government funding, including Rule 25 Assessment. Potential clients should be aware, however, that full physical and psychiatric evaluations are not part of the core treatment package, and may result in additional fees.
