USC United Summit Center - John D. Good Recovery Center Philosophy

The John D. Good Recovery Center provides residential treatment for adult men and women facing substance abuse disorder. Treatment options include a 90 day recovery community program, group and individual therapy and 12-step participation. Treatment is peer-driven and community-based and encourages self-reliance, personal growth, and responsibility.

Areas of Specialization

  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

ABOUT USC UNITED SUMMIT CENTER – JOHN D. GOOD RECOVERY CENTER

United Summit Center (USC) provides behavioral and mental health services to the residents of seven counties in West Virginia. Among the organization’s 17 locations is the John D. Good Recovery Center, which offers residential care for men and women struggling with substance abuse.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

To qualify for admission, clients must be between the ages of 18 and 24. The length of treatment varies, but clients can remain on-site for up to three months.

According to the facility’s website, programming is tailored to address each client’s specific needs, which are identified in an initial assessment. Participants can expect a mix of addiction education, recovery planning, relapse prevention, and 12-step work. There is also an educational component for family members.

Those who still require treatment after the three-month mark may be referred to group homes.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

According to the facility’s website, all treatment is administered by qualified professionals and paraprofessionals. Three reviewers polled by Rehabs.com rated the staff’s level of experience and training three out of five stars on average.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

John D. Good Recovery center can accommodate up to 16 clients at a time. Smoking is allowed during designated intervals at the facility. Three reviewers polled by Rehabs.com rated the facility three out of five stars on average for its accommodations and amenities.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Reviews from alumni are generally positive. Five reviewers on the center’s Facebook page, which the facility maintains, provided an average rating of four stars to date,[1] and a single Google reviewer submitted a five-star review.[2] Amoret, in her five-star Facebook review, described her treatment as “one of the best thing that ever happened to me five years ago,” and Savannah wrote: “John D. Good is a awesome and fair place to Help NA and I see the people that made mistakes turn into a happyer life for people.”

R.S.B, the sole alum polled by Rehabs.com to date, was denied pain medication even though she entered the facility five days after back surgery. She rated the facility just one star in every category, and wrote: “I feel that they should have taken into account my recent back surgery before having me enter. Or, they should have told my family and I up front what would happen to me and how I would be treated once in the program…It was one of the most horrible experiences of my life.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

While neither respondent mentioned any noteworthy amenities, both rated the facility four and five stars for family participation, counseling options, and cleanliness.

Each person was expected to do chores and participate in their rehabilitation.” And Bryan wrote: “Once your in its a good place be.”

This program was a state paid rehab. It was not a fancy place, but they had counseling classes all day long and NA/AA meetings every evening. Each person was expected to do chores and participate in their rehabilitation.

I had back surgery 6 days prior to entering this facility....They refused to give me my pain medication...I feel that they should have taken into account my recent back surgery before having me enter. Or, they should have told my family and I up front what would happen to me and how I would be treated once in the program....It was one of the most horrible experiences of my life...
