ABOUT VITALITY UNLIMITED — VITALITY CENTER
Founded in 1971 and partly funded by Southern Nevada’s Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Agency (SAPTA), Vitality Unlimited is an addiction treatment nonprofit. Vitality Center, one of the organization’s three residential substance abuse treatment facilities, offers medically managed detox and residential treatment for adult men and women struggling with substance abuse. Pregnant women and intravenous drug users are given priority treatment.
Residential treatment for adolescents is available at a separate facility.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment begins with a screening process conducted by a clinician, who refers clients to the appropriate level of treatment as determined by the American Society of Addiction Medicine.
The duration of treatment is determined by the client’s individual needs. All residents participate in at least 53 hours per week of group and individual counseling, and the facility’s website also notes that family treatment is included.
After residential treatment, Vitality recommends engagement in continuing care — for instance its own outpatient programs — for two to six months. Transitional housing is also available as well as outreach programs.
According to the facility’s website, there is a medical doctor and a registered nurse on staff, along with trained supervisors on duty 24 hours a day. The facility’s official website also notes that “all clinical staff is appropriately licensed and/or certified,” but does not give details of their credentials.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings; however, the three individuals polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave the facility two one-star ratings and a rating of four out of five stars for its accommodations.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the two alumni reviews received to date, one was very negative, giving just one out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, while the other was mostly positive, giving five stars for the same category.
The negative reviewer, Tami, described feeling very uncomfortable at Vitality. “It was worse than a jail. The food was not fit to eat. they put you in detox with absolutely nothing to do,” she reported. Yet, A.K. disagreed, writing: “The detox is just fine. There is a TV and movies, you are monitored by staff and you are fed. No its not dirty, is it the best food? No but you are there to recover.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The single loved one polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave negative feedback. C.C. gave Vitality just one star for the overall effectiveness of its treatment, and echoed alum Tami by writing: “This facility was dirty and according to our loved one, it felt like you were walking into jail.” C.C. gave the lowest rating of one out of five stars for treatment effectiveness and also complained about a lack of medical staff.
The single loved one to post on a secondary review site to date also gave negative feedback. S.C., posted on HealthGrove (where there are just two, one-star ratings to date) and described difficulties getting hold of necessary paperwork after their loved one’s stay, and added: “Very disappointed with the professionalism of this establishment.”
WHAT STAFF SAY
Though Rehabs.com has yet to receive feedback from staff members, those who posted on secondary review sites offered less than optimistic feedback. A reviewer on HealthGrove gave one out of five stars and told of many negative aspects of the facility. Among other complaints, they wrote: “…billing will be sent with outrageous prices despite a client being approved for sliding fee scale or insurance, and as witnessed, they will re-quote a price of a simple drug test double what the original quote to the client was by another counselor just to try to get more money out of a client.”
Additionally, on Indeed, four reviewers’ ratings average 2.8 out of five stars where the highest rating was four stars and the lowest was one star. Reviewers for the Elko location mostly cited a lack of workplace moral and being too busy to take breaks as negative aspects of the facility, though they also mentioned enjoying their clients.
According to its website, Vitality is contracted with several insurers, including Nevada Medicaid, Aetna, Anthem, Cigna, and United. The facility’s website also notes that all clients are accepted, regardless of their ability to pay. For qualifying clients, a sliding fee scale is available, based on income and family size.
