My husband\'s drinking was destroying him, our marriage, and family. We live in Florida, but his parents lived in Washington. We planned an intervention and he was admitted to Milam Recovery in Kirkland. He is 10 years sober this month. First of all this is not a resort or spa. This is a rehab facility people. They are not there to kiss your behind, but to save it. The counselors, are not \"mean\" they are direct and firm. Alcoholics and addicts need structure, discipline, and someone to get real with them. They are not going to baby you. If you are there it\'s because you need to be there. No, the food isn\'t the best, but again your not there for the food. The family group sessions were I felt very helpful. I recommend you take them. No, your not allowed to have electronics, because your there to get well, not update your Twitter, and Facebook account. This is a distraction from your treatment. No, there is no sugar or caffeine. The lack of these help your body detox. Yes, they will search your bags when you go in. Almost half of the people my husband was with tried to smuggle drugs or alcohol in. Imagine that, addicts smuggling contraband in. This is for your own good. Yes, you have to attend AA meetings daily. to reinforce your treatment/counseling. Yes, you are asked to attend after care meetings. Again, these are to help you, when your out on your own. In my opinion most to the negative reviews are people whining because staff are mean, they had to follow the rules, the food was not 5 star quality, their beds were not comfy, People get real. I\'ll admit the place could use an update, it is a little dated and dark, (at least when he was there) however your there for treatment for addiction. My husband has kept in touch with several of the people he was in with most of them are still sober or clean. So I think that is what speaks volumes, in my opinion. From my own personal experience Milam saved his life and that was all I cared about.
This place wAs far better then most out. There. The. Food was great..you can you can have the chef cook something for you. There\'s always fresh fruit & love the coffee/soda bar. You share a room with a bathroom. They do have private rooms. SS is very clean. There is a cleaning lady that comes everyday to make your bed @ clean your room. The program has a high success rate, even though the techniques seem strange. There are female & male but you can\'t talk to each other for to long bcause you will get written up & kicked out if you get written up more then once. Could you some activitys other then 2 groups per day & if you have counseling, that\'s another session.
This facility focuses on behavioral modification rather than focusing solely on addiction.
