ABOUT WALTER B. JONES ALCOHOL AND DRUG ABUSE TREATMENT CENTER

Located in Greenville, N.C., the Walter B. Jones Alcohol and Drug Abuse Treatment Center provides residential services to men and women struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues, as well as perinatal services to pregnant women throughout the state.

Prospective clients must be at least 18 years of age to be eligible for admittance, and the center gives priority admission to pregnant women, individuals who take drugs intravenously, or those with HIV/AIDS and communicable diseases. Length of stay is contingent upon each individual’s progress, and detox services are offered on-site, including methadone maintenance.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to the facility’s website, residential treatment consists of medical, nursing, and psychiatric services, substance abuse and co-occurring disorder counseling, recreational therapy, family services, and discharge planning.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

While there is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its treatment staff, the eight loved ones surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave the facility an average score of 4.1 out of five stars for its staff’s level of training and experience.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Other than the fact that the facility is tobacco-free, there is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings. One of the three alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com described the grounds as “gorgeous.”

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Overall, the five former clients surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave Walter B. Jones mostly positive feedback. All praised the staff and indicated that the treatment program was solid and structured. “I have nothing but praise for your facility. I, like most patients, found things to complain about while l was there, but 41 years later l still apply the things l learned to my everyday life. It does work,” wrote Parnell in a representative review. The only recurring complaint was that the food was not very good.

Ratings from three of the five alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing indicated that the facility’s counseling options are fair-to-average. One former client gave the rehab just one out of five stars for the amount of counseling promised, while the other two alumni gave the facility three and four out of five stars, respectively, for its counseling options.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The nine loved ones surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing also gave the facility positive reviews. Eight loved ones were polled on the staff’s level of training and experience, and gave it an average rating of 4.1 out of five, while the seven polled about family participation gave it an average rating of 3.9 out of five, along with 3.9 for its cleanliness and 3.4 for its counseling options.

FINANCING

According to the facility’s website: “Admission is available to any adult in our region regardless of financial resources or insurance status. Patients pay on a sliding scale according to their income.”

Communication with family was great. My experience with the facility was some what limited. The staff seemed friendly and helpful. This is a hard situation for families when a love one has to be admitted. I don't recall my family member having a complaint.

The education they provide is great; they taught them about their addiction. However, they need more employees.

I was not pleased with this facility.

I was admitted to your facility in 1971 and have been clean and sober for 41 years after a short relapse. I owe my life to Walter B. Jones and the things l learned there. I have nothing but praise for your facility. I, like most patients, found things to complain about while l was there, but 41 years later l still apply the things l learned to my everyday life. It does work. The thing that l still find amazing is you can be sober and happy at the same time. Thanks!!!

I think they were an excellent facility. I wish my daughter had stayed longer. She left before her time was up. Seemed like a prison to me, but I know it has to be like that b/c of dealing with addiction. Someone had to be present when I visited. It took an act of Congress to get to visit her. Everything I took her had to be given to the front office for inspection b/4 they gave it to her. I found out some of the items I took her (like chapstick) were thrown out b/c they were against the rules. She had a full scholarship there and blew it. She left there b/c she didn't like being told how to parent. She also didn't want to enter the work program. She remains drug-free a year later, but still practices a lot of behaviors that could send her down the slippery slope. Not the facility's fault.

The grounds were gorgeous and the success rate was fairly high. It is run by recovering addicts. The program was set up correctly but people enter thinking it will be easy and it is not. I would say a facility needs to be at least 90 days to be successful. It takes 30 to clean up and get your thinking straight. I have been sober 10 years.
