About USC United Summit Center - John D. Good Recovery Center
The John D. Good Recovery Center provides residential treatment for adult men and women facing substance abuse disorder. Treatment options include a 90 day recovery community program, group and individual therapy and 12-step participation. Treatment is peer-driven and community-based and encourages self-reliance, personal growth, and responsibility.
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.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

Donnie BJohn D Good Recovery Center was one of the most transformative and enjoyable experiences of my entire life, which I owe to the people I was with and the people who work there. I wouldn't trade my time there for anything.
MsIt was brought to my attention by a loved one in this center has repeatedly asked for the group meetings to stop allowing the glorification of drug use to be sole topic. I have even addressed this issue and it seems to be on going. Drug abuse continues to be an issue and the staff refuses to drug test anyone or stop this behavior. It is sad when even the therapist tells an addict this place is no good for them and this place if for people with no hope. So wow...great job staff.
BGThis program was a state paid rehab. It was not a fancy place, but they had counseling classes all day long and NA/AA meetings every evening. Each person was expected to do chores and participate in their rehabilitation.
BryanOnce your in its a good place be.. there a long waiting list. If you can get in I've heard it's a good place
RSBI had back surgery 6 days prior to entering this facility....They refused to give me my pain medication...I feel that they should have taken into account my recent back surgery before having me enter. Or, they should have told my family and I up front what would happen to me and how I would be treated once in the program....It was one of the most horrible experiences of my life...
