I have been going there 3 weeks now the councilors are very nice but not very helpful and as far as the DR. she supposed to be a psychitrist and addiction DR. If she's doing the suboxone program I've seen her a hand full of times and she's called me a liar, likes to argue with me and does not listen to what I say. Poor help if you ask me. I'm trying to find a Dr. That can actually help me not like to argue with me and put me down.

There are a couple good therapists. The tech staff was not good. I have had a few family members in this facility. At times I feel the staff is not attentive enough.

Security was a strength of the facility. However, effectiveness and follow-up was a downfall.

More recreational time. exercising, and getting out in the world...etc is good for recovery. The YMCA was an excellent tool for releasing tensions & endorphins. Not to mention staying fit...I have a eating thing. I sleep walk, and am a night eater...Been before a few times. Last time felt like jail. Like they were trying to scare us into sobriety
