Faith based and provide home cooked meals. Untrained teachers for the classes that are offered. Do not follow polices that have in writing - allow past patients to become 'workers' and live in the private rooms with girlfriends/spouses. Did short term volunteer work there and had close friends that were place there by a Judge (no longer a Judge) whose wife was a partner with the rehab and paid a substantial wage from the profits. Would tell anyone else to avoid this treatment center and pick one that is not based on a faith run center.

Provide homecooked type meals and owner/operator cares deeply for the clients. It is mostly faith based and staff is not educated and/or trained. Last visit showed it was being run by a pastor with no college education and family members... Before attending, ask if you can visit their church services and sit in on a couple of group teachings so that you have a clear idea if this is the place for your loved one.
