Willamette Family, Inc - Men's Residential Philosophy

Willamette Family provides a comprehensive residential program for men who have demonstrated the need for a 24-hour therapeutic environment. This highly structured program is specifically designed for clients to achieve maximum awareness of chemical dependency and how it has affected key areas of their lives and the lives of others. Lengths of stay are flexible and individualized, and counseling staff are dedicated to providing services that consistently demonstrate long-term, tangible results.

Areas of Specialization

  • Outpatient
    Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.

  • 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.

ABOUT WILLAMETTE FAMILY, INC. – MEN’S RESIDENTIAL

Founded more than 50 years ago, Willamette Family now operates seven facilities that treat men and women struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders in Oregon. This residential treatment center for men, also known as Carlton House, is located in Eugene. Medical detox and outpatient services are provided at other facilities in the Willamette Family network.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment at Willamette Family’s locations is holistic and strengths-based. All treatment programs are individualized, and the length of stay depends on each client’s needs.

The men’s residential program uses individual and group therapy along with evidence-based modalities, such as motivational interviewing (MI) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). The center also encourages peer-to-peer support, and operates a bell system whereby any resident can call a meeting whenever he wishes.

Carleton House also offers access to primary care and mental health treatment, as necessary. Coping skills training is available here, as well as smoking cessation courses and classes in anger management, relapse prevention, and parenting.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

According to the facility’s website, the men’s residential center has three full-time employees and one part-time; their credentials are not specified. The leadership staff includes social workers and certified addiction counselors.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The men’s center sleeps up to 27 men in rooms for three. Children may not stay with their fathers, but can visit on family day. Photos published on the facility’s website show common areas with TVs.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

At the time of this writing there have been two male alumni survey responses received by Rehabs.com. One alum, S.J.M., who’s between 26 to 39 years old, made a personal choice to enter rehab and chose this facility in particular based on a referral from friends/family. The client entered rehab for treatment of a dual diagnosis and stayed for 15 to 29 days. S.J.M. has been out of the facility for more than 12 months, completed treatment successfully, and entered a sober living facility after treatment. S.J.M. gave the facility five out of five stars for meals/nutrition and cleanliness, and they gave four stars for the facility’s accommodations. He also gave five stars for support of the treatment staff and training/experience of the counselors as well as five stars for the overall quality of both individual and group counseling.

Another alum reviewer, J.A.S. II, also gave the facility generally high ratings for several aspects of the quality of counseling received. He gave five out of five stars for the overall quality of group counseling, member empowerment/safety within the groups, and conflict resolution offered through group therapy. He gave four stars for the overall quality of individual counseling. J.A.S. II gave five stars for the accommodations and cleanliness of the facility and three stars for the meal & nutrition offered. This alum entered the facility for treatment of substance abuse and made a personal choice to enter treatment; he chose this facility based on a referral from friends/family. He stayed at the facility for 61-90 days, completed the entire treatment, and moved on to aftercare which included outpatient treatment and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings.

Both alumni gave the facility an overall score of five out of five stars. S.J.M. wrote, “i went to treatment to get help with my meth addiction. had tried many times to stop before but never quit drinking, finally figured out i'm an alcoholic also.” S.J.M. agreed when asked if he would recommend this facility to a friend or loved one who was considering rehab but J.A.S. II disagreed.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

At the time of this writing there has been one family member of a client polled by Rehabs.com. The loved one of the anonymous spouse reviewer stayed at the facility for more than 90 days and was treated for substance abuse. The respondent did not have regular contact with the client and did not play an active role in the client’s treatment writing, “We were not together at the time.”

The respondent did not provide any ratings for the various categories and features polled on about the facility. However, the respondent did indicate that she would recommend the facility to another friend or loved one if they ever required treatment and wrote that she thought the men’s facility was great. When asked if she would recommend the facility again if her loved one ever had to return to treatment, she disagreed and indicated that her spouse had too much history there after also working for the facility. The respondent added additional commentary and wrote, “They have their good and bad qualities. They are not consistent and have bad boundaries with clients. They hire all ex addicts and they all still act like addicts themselves. Not professional. They do care a ton about clients though. They try to do all of in their power to help.” This family member gave the facility an overall score of four out of five stars for its treatment effectiveness.

FINANCING

There is currently no information provided on the facility's website regarding its costs. However, most individual polled by Rehabs.com agreed when asked if the treatment plan was affordable and/or payment plans, scholarships, or financial assistance were made available.

Effective treatment, but substandard facilities.

It was beneficial that they were available on state insurances. However, it's like a revolving door for addicts. There is no counseling for mental issues. The return rate is very high. The information is that most addicts return to rehab on an average of 7 times.

I worked at the facility for 7 years. They have their good and bad qualities. They are not consistent and have bad boundaries with clients. They hire all ex addicts and they all still act like addicts themselves. Not professional. They do care a ton about clients though. They try to do all of in their power to help.

I relapsed after several months; however, my aftercare treatment consists of outpatient treatment and AA meetings.
