ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

WHAT ALUMNI SAY
At the time of this writing, there had been four alumni polled by Rehabs.com and their feedback was largely split. One reviewer highlighted several positive elements of the facility, but expressed dissatisfaction overall. This anonymous client felt that the facility was adequately equipped and staffed to treat co-occurring mental health problems, and that a strength of the facility was that the “Doctor who treats your mental health is on staff there.” However, she felt that the facility could improve upon its residences, describing the coed living at Preferred Family Healthcare as “not suitable.”
She also added, “I would not recommend this for someone unless they truly had a desire to stop using and could not go anywhere else,” while another anonymous alum added: "Lots of court mandated clients, which seems to be detrimental to those therw of their own choosing."
Contrastingly, alum H.K. wrote, "This place saved my life it gave me a choice I can now choose to use or to drink which I no longer due," and provided a four-star rating for extracurricular activities and a five-star rating for the level of staff support. "Absolutely the best thing I’ve ever done for myself," another anonymous alum added.
Reviews on secondary sites at the time of this writing were scarce but positive. Two Google reviewers provided a four- and a perfect five-star rating, with J.B. writing, " I finally have a purpose and no longer feel empty." On Facebook, the center earned an average rating of 3.5 out of five stars based on 10 reviews, which the facility may manage. "They really helped me along with the drug court team .. if your really willing to accept the help and willing to change your self," M.D. wrote.
WHAT STAFF SAY
Though Rehabs.com has yet to receive feedback from this facility's staff at the time of this writing, 234 current and former staffers on Indeed provided a 3.1 out of five-star average rating for Preferred Family Healthcare overall. The sole individual that specifically touched upon the Trenton location gave four out of five stars and wrote, "I enjoyed my co-workers and clients. Working as a team gets the job done."

MollyI was a patient here in the spring of 2014.I attended outpatient group twice a week. This was the most awful experience I have ever experienced. I came here seeking treatment by my school and what i got was absolutely horrible. Coming to this place twice a week was the most awful feeling. The employees were no where near professional.
