Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Jackson Recovery Centers offers a variety of addiction and mental health treatment options at numerous locations throughout Iowa. The Synergy Center, which is about 60 miles northeast of Sioux City, provides residential substance abuse treatment for adult men and women, as well as psychiatric care and dual-diagnosis treatment. A detox unit is located on-site.


Stabilization services at the Synergy Center are designed to help clients adjust to the treatment facility. Detox can last up to 72 hours, during which there is a physical and emotional assessment, and clients are introduced to the staff and other patients. Upon admission, each client receives a buddy that helps by answering questions and providing initial support.

Residential treatment plans at Synergy Center are individualized. The length of stay depends upon each client’s needs, but discharge planning is included in the individualized treatment plans. Utilizing evidence-based practices and gender-specific care, the program offers medication management, individual and group counseling, 12-step integration, life skills workshops, and various recreational and social activities. Family days are held over the weekend and include therapy and addiction education.


The Synergy Center staff includes a medical doctor, a registered nurse, and a psychiatric ruse practitioner, as well as licensed independent therapists.


Clients live in simple, dorm-style rooms and receive treatment in comfortable group rooms and offices. Residents eat meals in the cafeteria, although coffee, juices, and snacks are always available in the patient lounge.


Alumni reviews for Synergy are limited. however, one former client gave the facility five stars on Google Reviews. Clark wrote: “The staff was very polite and understanding, I had a chance to rewally look at my life and a chance to live a good clean life again.”[1]


The facility accepts Iowa Medicaid and most insurance. Sliding scale fees are offered based on family income.
