Review by Contributors


Based in St. Joseph, Mo., Addiction Awareness LLC. provides outpatient treatment and aftercare to individuals struggling with substance abuse. A local news story reported that the facility is one of the organization’s seven Missouri-based locations, all of which serve up to 300 individuals at a time. According to its website, the center is currently undergoing a transition in management, as well as a name change. The new center will be called Transformations Recovery.


According to alumni review data collected by, Addiction Awareness’s treatment approach is founded in 12-step principles. The center also uses SMART Recovery and a variety of treatment modalities, including individual therapy, group counseling, family therapy, codependency counseling, and moral reconation therapy (MRT). Workshops cover topics including anger management, relapse prevention, and parenting.


The center is owned and operated by a licensed counselor. No further information regarding the center’s clinical staff is available, but two individuals polled by rated the staff’s level of training and experience with two- and four-star ratings, based on a scale of one to five.


When asked how likely they were to recommend the center to others, the single anonymous alum polled by to date provided a rating of three out of five stars. While this client noted that the staff “really cared,” they felt that the staff’s lack of personal experience with addiction was a weakness. “The consolers wore not real drug user learned form a book. Not all people are the same,” they wrote. While this alum gave the center’s treatment effectiveness four stars, they gave two-star ratings to the program’s holistic offerings and affordability.

Alumni reviews submitted to third-party review sites are more universally positive. Both reviewers on HealthGrove gave the program five out of five stars and praised the staff.[1] “This treatment center really is awesome. I love most of the the counselors and clients that are there,” Tabatha wrote. S. indicated that the program helped provide a framework for recovery. “They help you build structure in live; a live without drugs,” they wrote.

Michael, a Yelp reviewer, also gave the facility five out of five stars.[2] Like other reviewers, he highlighted the staff as a strength of the facility. “The counselors take there time with you and take patience to be able to understand each individual there unique needs and what it will take to help each person to over come there own personal addiction,” he wrote.


The one loved one polled by felt that the center’s lack of inpatient care was weakness, but otherwise, they provided mostly positive feedback. When asked how likely they were to recommend the facility to others, they provided a rating of four out of five stars. They provided the program’s counseling options with a five-star rating, and the center’s family participation received four stars. “Good for 12 step program,” they wrote.


The facility’s website previously listed its fees at $40 per week, $150 per month, and $1,500 for a lifetime membership.
