ABOUT MHMR RECOVERY CENTER

MHMR Recovery Center is part of the second largest community center in Texas, which has been in operation since 1969. Located in Fort Worth, the trauma-sensitive substance abuse treatment facility provides residential treatment and inpatient and outpatient detox services for adults and adolescents seeking treatment for substance abuse disorders. Additional addiction-related, mental health, and disabilities services are available for adults and adolescents through four other MHMR facilities in the area.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The treatment process at the MHMR Recovery Center focuses on providing clients with the resources needed to begin their recovery. This includes detox services, which are available on an inpatient or ambulatory (outpatient) basis. These programs last around five days based on the clients’ needs. MHMR Recovery Center is among the 44 non-hospital facilities in Texas to provide outpatient detox services.

The detox program uses a range of treatments to manage and ease the symptoms of withdrawal. These include auricular acupuncture, individual and group counseling, medical monitoring, Suboxone-assisted withdrawal, and assistance with placement and referrals for continued care.

Residential detoxification takes place in a 20-bed unit over a five-day stay. In Texas, Suboxone is administered at 24.4 percent of facilities to help clients minimize opioid withdrawal symptoms and curb cravings. Once clients complete detoxification, they may be transitioned to MHMR’s Pine Street rehabilitation center, a 50-bed facility offering therapies and support services to help clients develop skills to live without drug or alcohol use.

Services at the Pine Street location include gender-specific treatments, substance abuse education, dual diagnosis groups, access to psychiatric evaluation, weekly family groups, trauma groups, skills training, and parenting groups. Case management, HIV testing, and referrals to community services and facilities are also available. In Texas, 42.2 percent of Texas facilities have programs specifically for women, while 40.6% of treatment facilities offer specialized treatment for men.

Specialized services are available for bilingual clients as well as adolescents. Outpatient treatments are offered through other Tarrant County MHMR facilities, including one Spanish-speaking outpatient facility. In treatment, adolescents have access to many of the same services as adults, but with a focus on the needs of their age group. Many of the treatment options focus on group-based activities. Family counseling is also a major component of adolescent treatment.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

MHMR staffs more than 2,000 employees. All staff members are appropriately licensed, including psychiatrists, nurses, therapists, teachers, dietitians, social workers, and case managers. The facility is a part of the 28% of CARF-accredited facilities across the U.S..

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The MHMR Recovery Center operates several facilities across the county that provide interconnected services. The Bill Gregory facility is a 20-bed rehab center. The Pine Street Rehab Facility has 50 beds. Clients stay in shared rooms in facilities that are focused on providing a relaxed atmosphere conducive to recovery. In these facilities, clients have access to kitchen and home-care services. Clients are also monitored 24/7 by medical and counseling staff members.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The single alum who provided feedback to Rehabs.com about MHMR at the time of this writing affirmed that the treatment was worth the cost, writing: “I owe them my life.” D.W. rated the level of staff support, the staff's level of training and experience, and the level of respect demonstrated toward clients five out of five stars. D.W. wrote in 2014: “Sober since Oct 2007 when i walked out those doors!” In one additional note, D.W. indicated "it was free" as the reason they chose the MHMR facility.

Eleven CiteHealth reviews to date were all very positive, rating MHMR an average of 4.2 out of five stars, with staff rated 4.2 stars and the facility 3.8 stars.[1] Two alumni described the program as life-saving. One wrote anonymously: “The best possible care and treatment. Knowledgable and caring staff. Great resources and referrals.” Another wrote that they “Would recommend this facility to anyone from all walks of life.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

At the time of this writing, five loved ones provided feedback to Rehabs.com about MHMR. The feedback was mostly positive. Loved ones found the treatment program to be generally affordable and recommended the facility for its follow up and financial assistance.

One recurrent complaint focused on the poor environment of MHMR, with clients writing the facility was "in a bad area" and "too loud." Despite this feedback, the loved ones polled found the facility clean and well-maintained. Loved ones were very satisfied with the level of family participation provided over the course of treatment.

Family Participation: 5/5
Facility Cleanliness and Upkeep: 4.8/5
Affordability: 4/5

Some dissatisfaction with staff interactions was mentioned in two reviews. One anonymous respondent wrote: “The staff was readily available when my loved on had any questions. Some staff were not so friendly.”

WHAT STAFF SAY

On Glassdoor, MHMR Tarrant earned an average of three out of five stars from 97 reviews to date.[2] The reviews are about the organization as a whole, with only one review specifically addressing this location. Feedback is mixed, with some staff members providing positive feedback about the “flexible schedule” and the “Good benefits,” others expressed concerns about the lack of “raises” and the “Poor” and “unprofessional management.”

FINANCING

MHMR offers services on a sliding fee scale. This scale is based on available funding for the organization, as well as each client’s ability to pay. The organization collects funds in a variety of ways from other organizations to subsidize client fees.

CONCLUSION

The MHMR Center is different from other facilities as it is focused on helping clients afford funding for services through unusual means. One of these ways is by collecting old life insurance plans from the community. Community members who have existing life insurance plans for family members that have not been collected can gift the returns to the facility as a charitable donation.
