Specialization

  • 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.
  • Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

I worked at MHS for about 6 months in a position where I had one on one interaction with clients. During the first few weeks of the Covid 19 outbreak the management was especially inept and had made it abundantly clear that their primary focus was on bringing in as much money as possible rather than promoting a safe environment. It was said time and again that if the larger men’s unit were to have to close due to covid positive cases, that the economic effects would be catastrophic. In May, a client of mine was being ushered out of the facility quietly but before he left, he told me he was being discharged due to testing covid positive. I reported my possible exposure to both my coworkers and management. A few days later I was terminated For very questionable reasons. Obviously this was due to me blowing the whistle so to speak...avoid this place at all costs!

If 0 was an option that’s what I’d give. My daughter was a patient here. She was detoxing from opioids. They said they have medical detox yet they gave her nothing for nausea, nothing for dehydration. The “protocol” meds they gave we’re given at the lowest level regardless of the state she was in. She lost 20 lbs in 5 days putting her under 112 lb from 132. Her heart rate was in tacardia in the 150’s at times. They make them clean their own vomit off the dirty floor regardless of how sick they are. When they told staff they were told in colorful language to clean it their damn selves and that they (staff) weren’t doing it. A staff member continually hurled insult to and about patients. I had to pick my daughter up and take her to ER myself then was told she lost her bed and maybe I could bring her back the next day if there was a bed. Mind you I paid her out of pocket 28 days fees at admissions. Awful place. There’s so much more.

From detox to check out day my treatment was amazing. I recommend this facility to anyone looking for structured treatment. Amazing structure. Not enough class variety.
