Specialization

  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

As one past reviewer stated, NOT a 2:1 staff to patient ratio. The house was at capacity of 22 patients, which would mean 44 staff members. Maybe the grounds keepers, etc were counted? My husband had a psych eval, but the results were only used for insurance authorization, not for treatment purposes. Our insurance stepped down care to outpatient after only 1 week leaving us to pay $150 a day for glorified AA meetings & extracurricular activities. Basically Summer camp for addicts. So incredibly disappointed. We were expecting so much more.

They were well furnished so that I didn't feel like I was in a hospital. I hated the food, but I am really picky... but ugh. I was forced to go and I am not going to stop smoking week; so in my opinion, this place is stupid.

The facility was clean but it had a weird aroma. They had an amazing gym and the staff was very friendly.
