About the Facility


Individualized Treatment

Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

    I\'ve been to this facility four (4) times over the past four (4) years. The admissions department is like a sales team. They call you throughout the year to see how you\'re doing and if you need to check-in and get help. It\'s almost as if they hope you are struggling so they can get you in. They have three (3) cottages and you are extremely lucky if they place you in the Keller cCottage. You have alot more freedom and you are trusted alot more of you make it to Keller. The techs are great. They always try to help you in any way possible. The therapist is excellent. She really is one of the better therapiss i\'ve been associated with. The nursing team were very helpful during my stay. The med nurses were always pleasant and respectful. The doctors know their stuff and will not let you go until they feel you are ready. It\'s really easy to get in to this facility and it\'s very hard to get out. Plan on being there between 14-28 days. The food was excellent. Overall, I would give CBH a 4 star rating. I would recommend my friends or family to this facility.

    Totally mislead into going to this dump.Was sold on the \"dual diagnosis anthem\", which they had little to no drug/alcohol treatment. Every client/patient was a total \"head case\", the place in a nuthouse,and a nuthouse ONLY!The food was good,however. Kudos to the kitchen staff.

    Strong mental health focus. The most caring staff possible. One of the doctors is very abrupt and tends to know it all before you\'ve even spoken to him, but he is a good clinician. Food is great, watch your waistline! The length of stay is on average 7- 21 days based on your insurance (first and foremost), two, if you were detoxing and , three, how you are responding to medication. If you need to switch your stay lenghtens as did mine.

    Mental health was a strength of the facility. However, there was a lack of programming and support for addiction. The facility was mostly aimed towards mental health. There was only 1 group a day for 12 step and sometimes they skipped it altogether. The weekends were downtime and did not have any groups or therapy. The therapists did not meet with me daily or weekly.

    Strengths: Comfortable environment, friendly staff, nice facility, great food. Weaknesses: The program itself wasn't long enough. Although everything about the facility was nice and welcoming, I did not feel that addiction was the focal point. I completed the program and was released with a certificate of completion after two weeks, even though I was nowhere close to being ready to leave.

    Not my first attempt at sobriety, but this time it stuck. Good food and nutritional advice, caring staff. My individual counselor appreciated that I wanted to understand more about the underlying mental condition that contributed to my addiction. She provided me with 3rd party literature to assist me. As a smoker, I didn't want to tackle that at the same time. They let us take breaks and even provided cigarettes or alternatives such as the patch, for those in need. Although not created on site, I thought the food was excellent. I gained some much-needed weight. The staff allowed cliques to form and some individuals were left out, which, in my opinion, is a contributing factor in addiction.
