ABOUT KEYSTONE TREATMENT CENTER
Located on 30 acres of land overlooking the South Dakota plains, Keystone Treatment Center provides medical detox, residential, and outpatient treatment for adults and adolescents 13 and older who are struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the facility's website, treatment is gender-separate and gender-specific, and course descriptions indicate that it’s heavily based on the 12-Steps. There are specialized treatment tracks for Native Americans, young adults, and Christians, along with tracks for people struggling with gambling, opioid dependence, chronic pain, and methamphetamine addiction.
The adult program includes individual, group, and family therapy, experiential therapies, and medication management. A young adult program, for those aged 18 to 26, offers groups on topics such as dating, peer pressure, and family problems.
Adolescent treatment for those ages 13 to 18 adds extra experiential therapy, including a ropes course and social training. A licensed teacher helps clients with schoolwork.
Outpatient options (offered from a separate facility in Sioux Falls) include a four-week partial hospitalization program (PHP), an adult intensive outpatient program (IOP) lasting six to eight weeks, and an adolescent IOP. All outpatient programs focus on the 12-Steps.
According to the facility’s website, staff includes psychiatrists, psychologists, doctors, nurses, social workers, licensed therapists and counselors, and pastors. The staff’s level of training and experience received an average rating of 4.71 out of five stars based on seven reviews.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
According to the facility’s website, amenities include an on-site sweat lodge, an outside area, and the treatment center has 14 beds. Reviewers tended to give high ratings for the facility’s cleanliness (which averaged 4.5 out of five stars based on 6 reviews), but many said the center was run-down.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the 15 alumni reviewed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, eight were positive and the remainder were mixed or negative. The staff’s level of experience, the level of family participation, and the treatment’s affordability won the highest ratings, while the facility’s connectivity policies and its holistic and counseling options fared more poorly.
The positive reviewers often described feeling accepted and said the program worked for them. “It’s like have a big family,” an anonymous alum wrote. And Chuck praised “their due diligence in treating people like normal people… and not some disease riddled leper.”
Yet many reviewers described the facility as very run-down, and many said there simply weren’t enough staff. “It is a rundown place with mostly patients that are thugs who are only there to avoid jail,” one anonymous reviewer wrote.
"The facility is outdated," another alum wrote. "They allow too many men to check in, which overloads their nurses and counselors. Due to the large numbers, patients are not getting the needed counseling (individual)."
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Of the eight loved ones polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, half provided positive feedback.
Like alumni, loved ones tended to give high ratings for the staff’s level of experience and the family programming. Their comments painted a picture of a fairly basic, though serviceable treatment program. Praise was awarded to the counseling options as well as the nurses and doctors. “Keystone is more than adequate,” an anonymous reviewer wrote. Yet they added that they would have liked more holistic options and a longer length of stay.
It’s worth noting that a few reviewers had outright negative experiences. Sherri noted that the promised Native American program fell short, and the staff treated clients poorly. “Poor supervision untrained counsellors. No communication with parents," Helen wrote.
WHAT STAFF SAY
The two staff members questioned by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing provided positive feedback, and both gave five out of five stars when asked if they would recommend the treatment center.
The two staff members also gave five stars for counseling options and family participation. However, the two staff member rated all metrics high with at least five or four stars respectively.
"The programs and services that are needed to succeed are in place," a staff member wrote. "Counselors are empathetic and care for their patients in a very compassionate way. The decision to seek treatment at this facility is a great and effective way to address substance use disorder concerns."
According to the facility’s website, many insurers are accepted, including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and United. The six reviewers polled at the time of this writing gave the facility’s affordability an average rating of 3.83 out of five.
