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.
  • Eating Disorder Treatment

    Many mental health professionals view eating disorders (including anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder, along with other dysfunctional eating patterns) as a food addiction – in that food is used in ways other than as fuel or a source of pleasure. Some, but not all, addiction treatment programs include eating disorder treatment as part of the service menu. Also, an eating disorder may be a dual-diagnosis or a co-occurring disorder with drug or alcohol addiction.

At first when arriving at the gables I loved it. I\'m a sufferer of alcoholism. The worse thing about the gables is they can not keep their counsellors employed. I witnessed 2 quit with in the time I was there. They are not able to work individually with clients much. If they do its a 15 min time slot and ur done. There are usually close to 30 girls with only 3 counsellors. I was given the normal homework and that was that. People have mentioned in reviews about the gables rules. There are many rules set in place to help you but others that hinder you from attending aa meetings or any therapeutic pass. Many have come to believe they keep clients there just for the money! I have witnessed woman do everything they were supposed to and maintain a job the whole time, find sober houseing and outpatient treatment and yet the gables tries to keep you for the money. The purpose of half way housing is to obtain a job and housing and after care, Well when ya do.. They keep you anyways. I\'ve never disagreed so much with how a treatment director . The director literally rolled her eyes at a client and shut her door. If you want true treatment were u learn I suggest not going here. It\'s literally a joke. They tell you what u need to accomplish before graduating... I myself accomplished everything and went way above and beyond and joined an aa committee and am going to college and working a full time job as well as obtained housing and yet then that wasn\'t good enough. It\'s all about the money! Truly my counselor did nothing for me. She didn\'t guide me in anything. I\'m the one that did the work, got a job got housing went to meetings got on committees maintains my life in sobriety got back into college. Not the gables. The gables was a place to sleep at night at the end of the day. I would not recommend this place at all. Your better off picking a different treatment! But don\'t get me wrong the actual owner of the house is a peach\' the best thing about the house. And several of the techs are amazing. Other then that I would never go back!!!

I was addicted to heroin and when I entered treatment at the gables 3 years ago, I was so scared, lost and broken. Upon completing the program for 4 months, I transitioned home with my parents and have remained clean and sober since! The Gables saved my life and was given the tools to live a sober life again.

    I spent two weeks exactly there. I went in after spending 28 amazing days at Rebecca\'s Residence naively believing The Gables would provide the same eye opening journey. Boy, was I so wrong. I got there Tuesday Sept 8th, they didn\'t even know I was coming, yet my insurance company did. They acted appalled that I was there but of course took me anyways ($$). The director, was rude and treated me like the scrum of the earth. She did my admit, it took two days. The day I came two councelors had quit, and left the day of and another Sept 10. My eval was done by a woman who left two days later. I was tossed around between the remaining two councelors and it all felt so not personal. I went to bed that night after taking 100mg of trazodone and unfolded my comforter and noticed my bed had NO SHEETS, NO BLANKET, NO PILLOWCASES so with my meds in my system I walked down the narrow stairs to ask the tech to get me these things and a clean comforter. She had me follow her downstairs (the basement) on my meds and grab my sheets. She had me use the dirty comforter and didn\'t hand me pillow cases. I walked up two flights of narrow stairs and made my own bed. Two nights in a row I slept without pillow cases after asking repeatedly. The first sevens days you\'re on restrictions. Meaning you are obligated to stay in the house the entire time. The meetings consisted of movies that we have all seen 5times in detox centers, outpatient and other in patient treatments. Movies from 1986. The community group is coin sisted on drama that the staff LOVE to bring on. The in house meetings are ran solely by clients (peers) which is chaotic. Silence, same people saying same stuff, women cussing, making jokes and the words I heard the f-word. The other three women who came same day I did all wanted to leave at this point it had been an entire week of this. I finally confronted the staff members about my experience. I still hadn\'t had a one on one with my councelor and was upset. I finally was pulled up into her office and we redid my eval that I did with the other woman day #1. I was has handed two packets to work on and sent on my way never to meet with her again. The house has a strong smell of urine (once was a nursing home), you get used to the smell though but when you have visitors they are always thrown back by this smell that you\'ll notice when you first enter. I was finally off restrictions and got to go to a scarce number of outside meetings. I also got chores which trumped my recovery, if I couldn\'t find someone to do my chores then I wouldn\'t be able to join recovery groups outside the home. Walking the 120# therapy dog three times a day (being pulled from my recovery group). The dog is adorable, I love dogs but I didn\'t come to treatment to take care of the director\'s personal dog. Cleaning up his fecal matter and clumps of golden dog hair every day. They are focused on us maintaining the old house more than our recovery. I didn\'t go to recovery to clean all day. They work off a check system (infractions) which are easy to get and you wake up every morning with checks for various things. I personally, only received one, but I was anal about not getting them because the consequences was being cconfined to the house. My councelor was absent in the hhouse and very unorganized. On the second week, she didn\'t even know my name. I was appalled and saddened. So I decided to leave, I am investing my time to grow and learn and this place was in it for the money, clearly. The food is scarce and disgusting. Freezer burnt. The breakfast is always the same cereal, warm milk, bagels and plain oats except Friday they make something \"special\". When I decided to leave, I was treated so poorly. They were mean, llaughing in the office and saying inappropriate stuff about me. The package I had coming this week, they wouldn\'t forward it to me instead are returning to sender. Why would they help me? The money stopped. This place is appalling. Please trust in my words, as I am Just warning other girls to know the real deal. It was hard because I had invested two weeks of my life and walked out feeling I regressed. Sad not all people are in it to help the addict but in it for the money.

    I had been to 5 other treatment facilities prior to going to the Gables. The Gables saved my life. I love the atmosphere and the fact that it really felt like I was recovering in a home and not a \'facility\' or hospital. It was warm and inviting. The counselors were incredible. My favorite thing was that I never once felt like I was being talked down to. Rather, I felt like I was talking to equals, educated women who genuinely cares about me and my success. There was a variety of groups and the programs were very educational. Having Ebby the dog around was great for me. I enjoyed having an animal around, it was very therapeutic. I learned so much about myself at the Gables. I also learned how to live with and get along with many other women. I was able to start working while I was there and get back on my feet. I appreciate the Gables for what they have done for me and for what they have done and continue to do for many women. I would highly recommend this treatment center to anyone looking for a positive and effective rehab. I will always be grateful for the Gables.
