ABOUT SAMARITAN RECOVERY COMMUNITY, INC.
Located in Nashville, Tenn., the nonprofit Samaritan Recovery Community operates in partnership with the United Way to provide treatment for adults struggling with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. The agency offers a breadth of programming that includes residential treatment, a variety of outpatient options, continuing care, supportive housing, programming for family members, and DUI school. Detox services are not available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Following a brief telephone screening, all clients meet with an admissions counselor to determine the most appropriate course of treatment. Clients who require intensive treatment and a high level of structure are typically admitted to the organization's 28-day residential program. New residents are assigned a peer "buddy" and have access to staff 24 hours.
During the day, residents participate in on-site, evidence-based therapeutic programming that aims to address each individual's unique psychological, physical, and emotional needs. In the evenings, clients are transported to local 12-step meetings. Specialized treatment is provided to clients who have received a dual diagnosis of chemical dependency and another mental health condition.
Outpatient treatment, which is available at intensive, partial hospitalization, and standard outpatient levels, is similar in design but less time-intensive. Additionally, clients who have completed treatment and are in the early stages of recovery may apply for housing through Bridgeway Crossings, the agency's transitional living program. Clients enrolled at Bridgeway Crossings are afforded the independence of apartment-style living while having access to employment support and recovery-related activities.
According to the facility's website, the staff includes medical doctors, psychiatric nurse practitioners, clinical social workers, licensed alcohol and drug abuse counselors, and a psychologist.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Accommodations represented in photographs on the facility's website feature comfortable, shared living rooms and lounges and modestly furnished bedrooms shared with one other resident. Clients have access to an outdoor recreation area that includes a basketball court and picnic tables. Telephone use is limited, and family visitation is held every Sunday.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Feedback on the facility at the time of this writing is almost universally favorable. Jimmy, the one alum polled by Rehabs.com, rated the effectiveness of his treatment five stars. "After forty years of using drugs and trying every way to stop and could not, I had lost everything. Samaritan Recovery Community gave me the tools needed to change my life, he wrote." Likewise, he awarded four or five stars each for aspects including general accommodations, meals and nutrition, staff training and support, and the quality of group counseling services.
On Google, Samaritan received an average rating of 4.4 stars out of five, based on eight reviews. One alum, Patrick characterized his treatment as comprehensive. Echoing the experience of Jimmy, he reported success after several prior attempts at rehab. "THE most effective treatment experience in my life […] It was at Samaritan where I became aware of a larger and more accurate perception of myself," he wrote.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Both loved ones who responded to Rehabs.com surveys would also recommend the facility to others. They awarded high ratings for the effectiveness of treatment and the level of staff training and experience. Feedback on opportunities for family participation in treatment was slightly less favorable, with three- and four-star ratings.
Although a metric measuring the facility's cleanliness and upkeep received four and five stars, one respondent identified "older facilities" as a weakness. The other anonymous family member appreciated the frequency of meetings offered, overall support, and "very structured environment." They also highlighted the value of aftercare in continuing recovery, writing: "After completeling the program it's important for patients to continue going to meetings and talking about their problem. SRC did an excellent job of stressing that."
One family member complimented the staff and community in a Google review, while another described it as "well administered, clean, affordable." The second reviewer, however, took issue with the transitional living program's lack of reasonable flexibility in applying certain policies.
WHAT STAFF SAY
A single former employee surveyed by Rehabs.com, found Samaritan Recovery Community to be comparable to a private treatment center. "It's just the best ...Treatment were as good as it gets. This non-profit, state funded facility was equivalent to some of the best private rehab facilities," she wrote. She strongly approved of the level of training and experience on staff, as well.
Samaritan Recovery Community publishes its fees online, at $6,800 for the 28-day residential program and three outpatient sessions per week for $150. A 90-day stay in the transitional housing program costs $7,200. Most insurance plans, including TennCare, are accepted, and those without insurance may qualify for government funding. The facility's website notes that a client is expected to pay only "according to his or her ability."
