Treatment Center Setting
Transformations Drug & Alcohol Treatment Center Philosophy
Transformations Treatment Center offers men and women a safe and comfortable home-like environment for alcohol and drug addiction treatment. The rehab offers a range of residential services, as well as individualized care and holistic treatment plans designed to heal the mind, body and spirit. Outpatient services are offered for those who are unable to get away from the daily demands of outside life. All programs at Transformations Treatment Center are client-focused and dedicated to helping individuals build a solid foundation for lifelong sobriety.
Areas of Specialization
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Once I entered Transformations, I came to realize how close I came to losing everything and I knew I had to beat my addiction no matter what. I was scared and ashamed...
Once I came through the doors of Transformations drug treatment center, I knew I had made the right decision in seeking rehab. I had to take back control of my own life and with your help; I was able to do that.
Thank you Transformations, you transformed a life that was lost and taught me the true meaning of being thankful for everything I have, I owe you more than you could ever know.
Once I entered the facility, the staff, counselors and therapists treated me with the utmost respect and dignity. I was given the help and support I needed to successfully deal with my alcohol addiction. Group prayer meetings and church sessions gave me something to look forward to as I battled back from the brink of destruction.
The love, compassion and support I found through their Christian drug rehab clinic was something I had never experienced before. I found that through Biblical teachings, church sessions and pray groups, I was able to fight back and be strong.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Programs extend from 30 to 90 days and combine holistic therapies and traditional 12-step treatment. Transformations is unique in its use of natural supplements and a stress-relieving “Serenity lounge” on-site.
Clients have over 100 groups and activities to choose from each week. One-on-one counseling, group therapy, and a focus on the 12-Steps are all key parts of the individualized recovery program. There are gender- and age-specific groups, life-skills training, and clients struggling with PTSD can participate in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Clients can also receive medication such as Vivitrol and Naltrexone to reduce cravings. The unique Brain Solutions program uses video games and activities to help restore brain chemistry and shift negative thinking.
For people looking for faith-based recovery options, the center’s Christian track offers bible-guided counseling and guidance. The three-phase intensive outpatient program is offered to graduates as a gradual step-down process out of treatment.
The treatment team at Transformations consists of a multidisciplinary staff of master's level therapists, social workers, an advanced nurse practitioner, a psychiatrist, and a chiropractor.

Several alumni commented on the beautiful, well-maintained facility and caring staff. “The living arrangements were very comfortable and the environment was beautiful.” Skylar told Rehabs.com and Mike added, “I have been to a few centers before, but none of them could compare to the living accomodations and the unbeliveable clinical staff.”
Several alumni, however, felt that there was an imbalance of young vs. older adults at the center and too much down time, “Almost all patients were teenagers or in their early 20's. Way too much playing around in and out of classes,” S.P.M. wrote and R.A.P. felt “They are a factory of kids facing jail.”

Several staffers commented on great therapists. “Excellent treatment provided by supportive and genuinely caring staff and therapists in a safe and engaging environment,” Rosalind wrote.
However, an anonymous reviewer echoed alumni commentary about young clients, writing “You will be around the "young and restless". Groups are seldom separated by age, and distractions abound.” Another wrote, “Management is horrible and only cares about the dollar.”
According to its website, the rehab is an out-of-network provider for all insurances, accepts PPO insurances, and encourages interested clients to contact the center for more information. Transformations also offers financing services to self-pay clients.
