ABOUT CHANGING ECHOES

For more than a quarter-century, Changing Echoes has been providing social detox and residential rehabilitation services to men and women struggling with chemical dependency. The facility is located on 20 acres in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California. Holistic treatment is based on a 12-step model, physical fitness, and peer support in both short-term and long-term residential programs.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The social model approach at Changing Echoes emphasizes the importance of each client’s participation in individual and group processes. The rehab center hosts Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings on-site, offers nutritional counseling and recreational activities, and encourages family members and friends of clients to be involved in their recovery.

In addition to counseling sessions, education classes, and 12-step immersion, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and referrals to off-site medical detox are provided as needed to minimize the discomfort of withdrawal.

After completion of any full treatment plan at Changing Echoes, alumni and their family members are invited to attend weekly aftercare meetings, which are held in various Northern and Central California locations. The aftercare program also includes access to treatment staff who track the progress of alumni in recovery.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment staff includes certified addiction counselors, relapse specialists, and stress reduction counselors.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Surrounded by mountain views and hiking trails near the small Gold Rush town of Angels Camp, the facility offers a quiet, natural setting for rehabilitation. Clients have access to an array of physical activity resources, including horseshoes stakes, a swimming pool, basketball court, and fitness room. An annual alumni picnic is held for former clients and their families.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The seven alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date mostly indicated positive reactions to Changing Echoes, particularly the cleanliness of the facility. However, alumni felt the visitor and communication policies with loved ones could improve. Alumni had mixed-to-positive opinions regarding the facility's staff.

Facility's Cleanliness and Upkeep: 4.7/5
Staff's Level of Experience and Training: 3.9/5
Connectivity: 2.5/5

In comments, alumni praised the strong counselor-client relationships. Alum J.J. wrote: "The counselors where excellent! Unlike other facilities they are always available to visit on one on one!" Awarding five-star ratings for the facility's individual and group counseling, as well as the amount of staff support, alum D.L.B. wrote: "I began to learn to love myself and treat myself well."

In keeping with the generally favorable alumni feedback collected by Rehabs.com, reviews left on the facility’s official Facebook page as well as on secondary review sites were nearly all positive. Of 19 Facebook reviews, which may be vetted by facility staff, 18 individuals rated the facility a perfect five stars, though one reviewer gave one star. The program’s life-saving effects, counselors, and introduction to the 12-step process were all cited as strengths.[1] Likewise, six Google reviews offered an average rating of 4.7 out of five stars.[2] Two echoed praises of staff.

Five YellowPages.com reviewers gave the facility an average rating of 3.5 out of five stars. Alumni were split on the facility's spiritual slant; some praised staff's counseling methods while others complained of a lack of supervision. One alum characterized the program as “too religious,” and another represented Changing Echoes as “no frills.”[3]

I began to learn to love myself and treat myself well. There is no substitution for self-love. I learned why I am like I am while there, and learned how to continue to treat my disease with 12-Step program.
