WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The more than a dozen alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date gave overall positive feedback. Former clients repeatedly reported high-quality care and a helpful balance of counseling and alone-time. "Even when my family wasn't supportive, I knew I could rely on the staff here," Kev commented. K.B. added an appreciation that many of the staff had been in recovery themselves, making them relatable and supportive.
Even alumni who initially felt resistant to treatment came to appreciate their time at this facility: "Staff was always nice and kind which made it easier when I got homesick. Overall good experience because they were super supportive and I did get clean (still clean). I'd recommend this place," W.T. wrote.
E.F. gave the facility five stars for treatment effectiveness and wrote: “This treatment center really cares about their clients. I got help here and ive been clean for 6 months now.” Although alum N.J. gave only two stars for counseling options and treatment effectiveness, she felt the experience helped her long-term sobriety. “I gained a great bond with my house mates, and in the long run helped me be vulnerable and open through the program.”
However, a few alumni were critical of the facility's accommodations and holistic offerings. “A lot of the days we did not do much of anything and the days that we had sessions were repetitive and not helpful,” wrote alum B.A.S.
