Overall a great, much needed, life-changing experience for me. When I finally got myself to go my mental health was fading fast and that was my last hope. My only regret is not going sooner. Some details for someone planning to go: don’t bring anything you really like or would miss, because sadly the staff will steal it. I had a brand new expensive perfume as a gift that had to be locked in the basement in my suitcase with a few other things that weren’t allowed in- the day I left when I got my things back the bottle was empty and the cap was cracked and rolling around my bag. Many girls reported their cigarettes being stolen by the carton- which was evident because staff and patients sign in each and every item together. A few ladies had makeup stolen or tampered with. Anyway theft was reported a dozen times with no answer or reimbursement to any of the girls.
Food is great, full time chef who’s super sweet and accommodating. Portions are generous, prepare to eat- a lot!
The bedrooms are clean and bright and put you at ease.
There is NO doctor on site, so if you come without something you need, forget it. Make sure you consider that before you go. There are onsite clinicians but the one I had seemed unqualified and unprofessional and they rarely see you anyway. Once a week.
Sue is one special person. She yhas been there the longest of the on site staff and will touch your heart somehow, she was the most influential for me.
This place will bring structure and faith back into your life, would recommend to anyone who needs.
