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.
  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

I had a family member get admitted was promised a phone call the following day, no phone call. Sat I called the 1-800 and left a message to receive an unprofessional return call from the CM Supervisor. Its Monday now, impossible to call the facility directly and every person I have spoken to over the phone has been unhelpful and way below any level of compassion that I have ever experienced. When you call the 469 number there is only a voicemail. This facility is scary its out in a rural area with no direct dial phone number nor anyone to answer their phones. Additionally, they refuse to acknowledge consent forms signed during admission they were really fine with speaking to me. Its not professional

TAKE HER TO THE HOSPITAL TOLD SHE WILL DETOX THERE FOR 3-5 DAYS SO WE LEAVE. 2 HOURS LATER GETTING A CALL FROM MY DAUGHTER AND A NURSE FROM THE REHAB SAYING THEY ARE TAKING HER AN HOUR AND 1/2 AWAY TO A DIFFERENT DETOX FACILITY! OUR DAUGHTER WAS NEVER GIVEN ANYTHING FOR HER WITHDRAWLS AND HONESTLY DID NOT TRUST GETTING IN A STRANGE CAR TO BRING HER SOMEWHERE SHE HAD NO IDEA WHERE SHE WAS GOING. SHE WAS LEFT IN THE HOSPITAL PARKING LOT TO FEND FOR HERSELF AND WE COULD NOT GET HER TRANSPORTATION IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. SHE HAD HER BOYFRIEND GET HER A RIDE. sHE WAS IN THE PARKING LOT FROM 8:30 PM UNTIL 4:50 AM. NO CARES FROM THE REHAB SHE WAS TO BE A PATIENT AT. NOW WE ARE AT SQUARE ONE AGAIN! I DO NOT WANT THIS NIGHTMARE TO HAPPEN TO ANY OTHER FAMILY!

My son was at a place in his life that he was ready for help. DPR was able to give him the help he needed. I believe (from the time I visited) that the people at this facility truly cared about him - and that made it a lot easier on this mom. They also had family sessions where they answered our questions and sometimes just gave us the hug and encouragement that we needed.

This is a beautiful facility. My son received the help that he needed. The staff aren't just there for a paycheck - they actually care about these people. His case manager went above and beyond. She included me in so much of what was going on, even though my son is an adult. His therapist worked with him and also had sessions that included me and his dad. The chef made him feel good about himself - she served 5 star meals and they knew it was made with love. Two staff members actually went to court on behalf of my son several times. I feel like these people and this place became an extension of my family. My son worked the program and when he discharged, he went to DPR Sober Living. It's not in the best part of town, but the people there cared about him and kept him accountable. He is working hard and knows he has a community that is there to support him. He attended an alumni get-together with DPR and had so much fun. When he initially went to the Sober Living facility he also had to attend IOP several days a week and I believe that helped him tremendously. I honestly don't have one bad to thing to say about this place - they saved my son's life and helped him create a life that he is proud to be living.
