Specialization

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

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.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Rehabs.com has received feedback from over a dozen former clients to date, and these responses were nearly all glowingly positive. Reviewers repeatedly noted how warm and welcoming the facility was: “They don't treat clients like patients but more as fellow addicts,” one anonymous reviewer wrote. Repeated praise was also awarded to the center’s aftercare programs, its staff’s dedication to staying in touch, and its family program: “Wonderful place that not only treats the individual who is suffering but the family as well,” Katrin wrote.

Small group sizes were also widely praised, which Carter, amongst others, emphasized in his review: "The staff are so great.i enjoyed everyday and looked forward to my small group therapy."

Many individuals also noted unsuccessful experiences at other treatment centers, commenting on the remarkableness of Ambrosia. Lauren explained, "I have been to multiple treatment centers and Ambrosia has by far made the most impact," in a representative statement, and the majority of alumni noted that they would recommend this facility to others, such as Eric, who wrote, "I would recommend this place to anyone who struggles with substance abuse."

At the time of this writing on Google, feedback for this location was also highly favorable, with 4.9 average stars from 45 reviewers to date.[1] Dozens of former clients expressed gratitude to the staff, shared success in their programs, and showed high-levels of satisfaction with the maintenance of the facility.

In a representative comment, K.M. wrote, "Beautiful facility with a caring, committed staff. Ambrosia is the ONLY place I recommend to anyone seeking substance abuse treatment."

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Of the 11 reviews submitted to Rehabs.com by loved ones to date, eight were positive and three were negative. Among the positive reviewers, some noted that treatment had saved their loved one’s life, and there were also repeated echoes of alumni’s praise for the compassionate, caring staff and the family program: “I found that Ambrosia cared about my son and about me as his mother,” K.K. wrote in a representative review. A few reviewers also noted that staff show continuous care post treatment. “The support given to the family was over the top ! They still reach out and contact me months after discharge !” Karen wrote.

One father, however, reported Rehabs.com, “Horrible, my son died within 48 hours of discharge after a two-month admission.” Though Don’s was the most extreme criticism of the facility submitted to Rehabs.com to date, loved one Mar, who was polled more extensively by Rehabs.com, gave a two out of five-star rating for the staff's level of experience and training, as well as a one-star rating for the amount of family participation.“No communication nor parent education Driven by greed,” Mar wrote.

    This place is a absolute joke of a rehab . They make it seem like alot is being done while kids just run off to get High and they accept them back as long as Mommy and daddy’s insurance is good. They have cameras everywhere but not one works so clients are in and out of each other’s places stealing food and bringing girls clients over to male houses and male clients to female houses. The staff at the center thinks they are better than you and make you feel like you are the one doing something wrong when they aren’t going by the schedule which tells you where you are supposed to be at what time. Clients were on time more to groups and sessions than staff. So if you want to go to a rehab where you learn to be more of a parent and be around people who dont care about you while they continue to get high ambrosia treatment center is the spot for you.

    I loved my experience here. I felt that all my assignments hit everything that I've been avoiding over the years and helped me more than I thought was possible. The staff cares so much and goes above and beyond.
  • A. D.
    Ambrosia is a great experience for young adults whom are trying to recover from substance abuse. During my experience, I have encountered genuine care and concern for me and I have witnessed the love and the passion that the employees have here for their jobs. They didn't give up on me when they could have and I am so appreciative of that! They taught me to not give up on myself!
  • D. C.
    I learned a lot about myself and came to accept the fact that I am an alcoholic and I do need help. I learned a lot from other people and a lot about this disease. I feel like I am in a much better head space than when I first got here. I am not as down on myself and have an actual plan going forward. I thought the staff was good, everybody did their job and was very helpful!
  • M. R.
    This place helped me so much in so many ways! I have never had this much growth in my life! I never thought I would be happy sober. I never thought I would get rid of insecurities and talk to people while looking into their eyes. I have found skills and coping that doesn't involve drugs. I am just so grateful for this place for that. That is something I never would have found out on my own! The staff was fabulous and very helpful! The housing is super nice too! I have no complaints and would highly recommend this place!
  • A.W.
    My experience was very comfortable, I didn't not like anything! They really helped me to feel better about getting sober! The staff was great! Very helpful, kind, and easy to relate too! The housing is very clean and comfortable! I would definitely recommend Ambrosia!!
  • Lucas P.
    Ambrosia really helped me with getting clarity on things and maturing me more than I was before. The therapy was really good and helped me out a lot. The staff was really good, I don't have one complaint. I would definitely recommend Ambrosia because I thought I wasn't going to be able to change or get help, the second day I was here I felt like my mind set had completely changed and I was focused on reality.

    The difference between New York treatment centers and Ambrosia is like jail and going swimming. The staff was very good, excellent. Always very respectful and helpful. The housing was great too! They helped me lower my desire to drink from when I had to drink all of the time, now I don't want one.
  • J.C.
    Everybody was very helpful here and treated me well and was very comforting. They all did their very best to help me and were supportive.

  • J. B.
    The staff is excellent and goes above and beyond for you! They helped me with everything! This is my fourth, unfortunately, and they are absolutely 100% the best program I have ever been in. They are the most friendly, helpful, understanding, and non-judgmental! Anything that I needed, they helped me with! When I asked for something, they took care of it and cared so much! There is a big difference between this program and all others and I would highly recommend it!

All of the groups are really good, they definitely hit on topics that you need to talk about before you get out of treatment.

    I worked on a lot of trauma while I was there and got a lot of help! They helped me with self-pity, self-loathing, and getting out of my head. I also built a relationship with a higher power while I was there and it has been helping me because I never did that part before. The staff is really good, really helpful, and very beneficial to my recovery. They are so easy to talk to about your problems and they are really good at handling high stress situations. The housing is really good, very clean and nice housing. I came in from the streets and it's really nice to have a super nice and clean place to live. I would absolutely recommend Ambrosia, they actually work with you and get to know you individually. You have a specific treatment plan to help you with what you need help with and they do not give up on you. I felt so weak and destroyed when I came in, I finally feel happy and confident. I am not sitting in self-pity and I am actually okay with myself today.

    Ambrosia really helped me stabilize my moods and how to cope with my mental health! I learned a lot of coping skills for life, that I don't have to pick up! The staff was great and very helpful! When I first came in I felt all over the place, the opposite of calm, very anxious and upset about my relapse. Now I feel motivated, a lot calmer, and I feel happy. I would recommend Ambrosia because it feels like safe place, good therapists, really amazing staff, and the groups are geared toward understanding what addiction really is and super helpful!

The staff made me feel comfortable, they were all easy to talk to and very inviting. The therapy is really good and they have really good therapists. I had groups that I had not in the past and that was really good for me. The housing is very nice and a neat little community how everything is connected. Ambrosia is a good place to get the help that you need or want!

    This place saved my life! Ambrosia has gone above and beyond for me when I had lost all hope and faith in myself. They have become a second family to me, and I would not be where I am today without the help of Ambrosia. I tell all my friends, family, and fellow alcoholics and addicts who are struggling to reach out to Ambrosia for the help they need. I can't begin to express my gratitude for Ambrosia and all they have done for me!

    Ambrosia really helped me learn how to cope with my trauma, becoming stable enough to further my recovery outside of treatment, and coping skills that are necessary, easy to use, and that I like doing.They loved and supported me every step of the way even though I did not love myself. The staff is amazing, they are so supportive and were very easy to relate to. The structure taught me skills for being independent like cooking for myself, doing laundry, and cleaning up after myself. I've been to multiple treatment centers and this by far is the best and the most beneficial! I know have over 6 months sober and I attribute a huge part of that to them!!

    Ambrosia really helped me get used to outside 12 step meetings and knowing they are an important part of my aftercare plan. They helped me learn how to communicate better and helped me get back into physical activity. I learned a lot about how to manage my anxiety and depression in a healthy way instead of doing what I used to do. The staff was very helpful, awesome staff! I would recommend Ambrosia because they really help you get on track with battling your addiction!

They helped me a lot with my co-dependency and helped me realize that I can do things by myself, get a job, and start my life. All of the staff is really great and very nice. I liked the housing, it was very nice and comfortable. I would recommend Ambrosia because they are really organized and help you learn what to do to stay sober and how to do it outside of treatment.

    Ambrosia was helpful with stabilization and planning goals to work towards outside of recovery. They helped me find productive ways to execute my goals and recognizing ineffective behaviors for my recovery and identifying positive ones. Case Management was amazing and helped me set up great aftercare. Staff is great and very caring. I would recommend Ambrosia to specifically people whom really want to start living sober because there is a lot of structure and 12 step based groups to help when you get out of treatment.

    Ambrosia really helped me learn life skills such as cooking and cleaning up. It's not like other treatment centers, they teach you how to live on your own so it's not a big shock. They take it very serious and hold you accountable. There is a lot of structure and the therapist are really helpful. The staff is amazing and all care. I would recommend Ambrosia because of the structure they have, how much they care, and the structure. It's not a joke and they take helping you very seriously and setting you up in a way for your best chance at success.

    Coming in from rehab hopping and continual substance abuse, this place really changed me. I learned the underlying reasons for my addiction, coping skills, getting to know who I am, learning to be vulnerable and let people in, letting my guard down and at the same time not being to vulnerable and in general not being a scumbag. They helped me to get back on the right track to being a normal human being and I am proud to say that I am actually doing it this time and putting in the full effort. The staff is excellent, very loving and accepting of everybody with open arms. They treat everyone like human beings. I would definitely recommend Ambrosia because it's an opportunity that most people do not have. They approach situations and approach people individually and most rehabs do not. The layout of the rehab is very different from others. The program is very personalized and individualized. I have never gotten so much time in a rehab in my entire life.From all of the rehabs I have been to I would say this is the top and the best of the best!

    I had an overall great experience and I don't have any complaints. The therapy was really good and I am usually against therapy. Now I'm willing to continue therapy after treatment. Every one here has been really understanding and willing to help me. The houses are really nice, very clean, very pretty, and have a nice pool! I would recommend Ambrosia to other struggling addicts!

    Ambrosia was something that changed my life. It helped me with the beginning stages of my recovery and I am excited to see what happens in the future and to stay sober. When I first I got here, I wasn't open to working on myself. After being here for a little bit I became willing and was able to really work on letting things go and becoming a better version of myself. I gained a lot of knowledge while here and I feel that I gained tools that will help me work continue to work on myself after this and work a good program of recovery.

    When I first came I wasn't ready to share everything. I didn't trust anyone. After that, my therapist really helped me to start sharing and gained my trust. I started listening to his guidance. I have learned to just share instead of keeping everything to myself. Drugs and alcohol were my solution for everything instead of just sharing where I was at. I am ready to change that and make it right! I am grateful and have no complainants. Everyone was great.I'm really grateful for the program and all the staff here. They really helped me to change my life!

    I came down and was comfortable right away. I was able to open up immediately. I got out things that I thought I would never talk about and take to my grave. I felt safe with my therapist and group. I put myself in vulnerable situations and opened up to people. I learned that it's okay to open up and not keep things to myself. I needed that help. All of the therapist were amazing. I began remembered things I had mental blocks with. Now that they have been exposed I am more comfortable with myself and what I have been through. Now I can help others to become comfortable like I have. All of the techs have helped me and always check on you. Everyone is very kind and has helped me a lot. I would recommend Ambrosia because I came from a treatment center and thought I wasn't going to get much help here. That wasn't the case. I got so much help. All the therapist have their doors up and you can trust them. I can trust all of the staff that if I went to them about something I know that it would not get spread. They encourage higher power which is very important and the twelve steps. They give you a good foundation. We did different activities which helped us get to know each other and realize everyone has the same feelings. Family day was the most intense and therapeutic family day I have ever attended. I was made comfortable enough to go up in front of everyone and discuss my feelings. They take us to twelve step meetings and they are very good and gave me a lot of insight. They give you a good foundation.

    Ambrosia helped me with my grief issues and my co dependent issues but most of all how to live life on life's terms. Something I struggled with for years. They taught me not only how to stop using but made me realize I needed to change who I was on the inside. I would highly encourage anybody struggling with addiction in their lives, to reach out to Ambrosia. They have a well balanced diet of therapy and fun. I owe my life to these people.
