WHAT ALUMNI SAY had yet to receive alumni feedback at the time of this writing. However, on Google, 15 reviewers gave a poor average rating of 2.2 stars out of five.[1] Negative reviews included monetary complaints and reports of difficult staff members. B.M. wrote on the site in a representative review, “Worst scam of all time with the most insensitive people.” Another anonymous reviewer added, “They don't do their job correctly and screw people over! Absolutely ridiculous!”

A.B., a four-star reviewer on the other hand, praised the facility. “I have been treated with kindness throughout my time under VASAP,” she wrote.


The sole staff member responding to a poll to date gave positive feedback. The employee gave near-perfect four-star ratings to the facility’s treatment effectiveness and accommodations. The anonymous reviewer gave a mediocre rating of three out of five stars for the center’s affordability, counseling options, and discharge preparations. Despite giving a rating of three stars to the treatment staff’s level of experience and training as well, this individual wrote, “The staff and patients were friendly.”

On Indeed to date, three reviewers left a one-, a two-, and a three-star rating.[2]


Specific fees are associated with different programs, though the facility’s website doesn’t state the exact cost.
