The staff is not attentive, helpful or responsive. They switch accommodations at the drop of a hat, no heads up to the family. Clients go without med treatment follow up and.they don't seem to care.when family members check in. They dont reply.

Dedicated, well trained, recovery experienced staff. Top notch therapy. Recreation activities were well planned and consistent. Group therapy class size is too large and distracting. No faith based track.

This place saved my life! If it wasn’t for the staff, I don’t know if I would be where I’m at today. I was crippled with fears, doubts, and insecurities. They met me where I was at and had a game plan for me the entire way. They made me feel extremely welcomed from my first day all the way until my completion. Consistent the whole way. Thank you Process!!!!
