ABOUT CHARLIE’S PLACE RECOVERY CENTER

Set in the coastal city of Corpus Christi, Texas, Charlie’s Place Recovery Center has been providing substance use disorder treatment to adults since 1965. The facility offers residential and outpatient treatment, along with medically monitored detox services. It's one of 36 non-hospital based substance abuse treatment facilities in Texas (just 8.4 percent of all treatment facilities) to offer medical detox.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The residential program is based on 12-step principles and uses evidence-based modalities to facilitate treatment. Programs can last anywhere from 14 to 120 days, depending on each client's needs. Charlie’s Place Recovery Center is one of only 94 treatment facilities in Texas (just 21.8 percent of all treatment facilities in the state) to offer residential programming that lasts longer than 30 days.

Clients participate in a structured schedule of individual and group counseling, supported by educational coursework, which includes at least 30 hours of counseling, education, and life skills training per week. Family counseling is also available and encouraged to rebuild each client’s support network.

Outpatient treatment can be used as a step-down from residential care, or as stand-alone treatment for clients who require less supervision. Clients in the outpatient program attend group therapy three times a week for a total of eight weeks. They also receive weekly one-on-one counseling.

Aftercare services for graduates are also offered and include support groups and recovery education.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment team includes licensed therapists and chemical dependency counselors. To date, the seven individuals polled by Rehabs.com who evaluated the staff's level of training and experience appreciated the staff's aptitude.

Staff Experience and Training: 4.1/5

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Charlie's Place Recovery Center is set in a fully renovated former hotel that offers living quarters, staff offices, and therapy rooms. There is also a cafeteria, a recreational center, and a large outdoor courtyard. Cigarette smoking is allowed in designated areas. To date, the seven individuals polled on the matter appreciate the overall quality of the facilities.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

All six of the former clients surveyed by Rehabs.com to date gave Charlie’s Place Recovery Center mostly positive feedback. They indicated that the facility was clean and staff were helpful, and noted that they would recommend the rehab to others. "Charlie's literally transformed and saved my life this year (2016)," TRT wrote in a representative review. "I can't say enough nice things about the staff, the techs and the counselors."

Alum T.P. awarded perfect five-star ratings for the effectiveness of group and individual counseling, the level of staff support, and the respect shown to clients. Offering five stars for discharge planning and family participation, another alum cited "Counseling and assistance" as program strengths.

While complaints were minimal, a couple of former clients noted that the aftercare services needed improvement. In addition, one alum reported that they needed more one-on-one counseling.

Charlie’s Place Recovery Center received positive feedback from secondary sources, earning an average rating of 3.9 out of five stars based on 33 Google reviews[1] and a 4.5 out of five star rating based on the opinions of 123 individuals on Facebook, which the facility may manage[2].

The majority of former clients across both sites praised the facility for its structured treatment programs and helpful staff. "There's no other place like Charlie's when it comes to recovery," Charles wrote in a representative review on Google. The staff, treatment and curriculum are very helpful and amazing!"

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The majority of loved ones polled by Rehabs.com to date (four out of six) gave Charlie’s Place Recovery Center positive feedback. They indicated that the counseling was effective and that the treatment team was warm and caring. "Genuine concern for patient and family Hard to get into If you are in need of help, this facility is pretty awesome," one of the anonymous loved ones wrote in a representative review.

Overall, the five loved ones polled on the matters generally approved of the amount of family participation and counseling options, though most reported they'd be highly likely to recommend the facility to others.

Counseling Options: 3.8/5
Family Participation: 3.6/5

FINANCING

According to the facility's website, detox costs $1,500 per day ($500 if paid in cash), the residential program costs $1,000 per day ($200 if paid in cash), and the outpatient program varies based on each client’s treatment plans.

Some private insurance plans are accepted. The facility also takes Medicaid, which is accepted by a little more than half (57.1 percent) of treatment facilities in Texas. To date, the six individuals polled on the matter by Rehabs.com appreciate the facility's cost.

Affordability: 4.2/5

If this place was located near by a hospital, my loved would not travel too far to get medication. Well it does work for some people and it doesn't work for others. However, it did work for loved one.

I have to write a review here because Charlie\'s literally transformed and saved my life this year (2016). Coming in I should have died from excessive drinking several times and wasn\'t going to be helped by just going to a support group like A.A. Charlie\'s detox program got my body right, their residential program got my mind right and their supportive program gave me the opportunity to transition out of the relative safety of full-time living at Charlie\'s and back into society all the while giving me a safe haven to return to each night. I can\'t say enough nice things about the staff, the techs and the counselors. Many of them work for around $8/hr and can barely pay their bills but there they are helping alcoholics and addicts in need. I\'ve heard a lot of flack directed towards the facility in general and I just don\'t get it. You live in a renovated hotel for God\'s sake, what more could you want??? Plus a lot of people that complained while I was there were there for free; either covered by insurance, state funded or funded by V.A. programs. I made a couple of friends for life while there and was so impressed at my transformation I relocated to Corpus after my successful discharge. Gotta mention my counselor because she was phenomenal, miss you. I will be forever grateful for the part you played in my recovery. If you struggle with alcoholism or addiction I urge you to check out Charlie\'s and do what you need to do to get in there. This was my second time in rehab, the first coming somewhere else years ago and I truly believe it was my last.

The facility did not set up the person for after care. The rehabilitation was not successful.
