I am a graduate from The Right Step. If it seems impossible for you to stop drinking or using drugs or you have a family member or friend with this dilemma, then this post is for you. The Right Step is a safe and effective treatment center for you or your loved one. It's comprehensive "Positive Recovery" curriculum is second to none. Their staff is caring and non-judgemental. Most, if not all of them are also recovering addicts and alcoholics. Who better to guide you through the beginnings of your recovery? From the moment I arrived, I was given a medical detox to lessen the pain of withdrawals. The food was delicious and plentiful. I had my own room with a comfortable bed. There was also the availability of exercise equipment and a staff member to help you train if you desired. I also attend a weekly alumni meeting here to give the newcomer hope that, along with me, they too can recover and are not alone. I hope that you or your loved one makes the decision to stop this horrible disease in it's tracks and there's no doubt in my mind or soul that there is no better place than The Right Step. Nobody paid me or had to convince me to write this review. I'm doing this out of the love I have for you and the hate I have for this disease.

The counselors were very involved. Counselors were phenomenal and available. Self pay costs were too high.
