I was a patient at Mt. Regis 5 years ago. So I'll just say this: I was a heavy user. My life was in the toilet. I was using IV heroine and ready to die when I was forced into their program (2016). I've been clean since 28 days after admittance. MR saved me. I had tried so many times before then. With my parent's help. With my spouse's help. With my friend's help. Still I was slowly killing myself. The nursing staff commiserated with me. They are recovering addicts. They took me to the hospital when my vitals got scary. They advocated for me when I had to tell strangers that I couldn't have opiates for pain. They held my hand while I cried and felt sorry for myself. They kicked my butt when I thought I was "too good" to go to a meeting. The kitchen staff let me walk "behind the scenes." I told her that banana milkshakes were the only thing I could keep down for months. She showed me the blender, the bananas, the milk... that's all I ate for 3 weeks When I could eat solid food again, everything that was prepared was delicious. So delicious that I gained 10lbs before I left (was 20lb underweight when I entered). This place gives CARE. The bottom line is this: I was in active addiction for years before I found MR. As of Sept 29th 2021, I'm 5 years clean BECAUSE of MR. They sucked. I hated them. I loved them. I couldn't wait to leave and I MISSED them. But I'm clean. I'm thriving. I've gotten back everything that I had lost. If you want to get back what addiction has taken from you, just give it 28 days of your life. You've given addiction at least that. So make it a fair trade.
I had never been to a self-pay facility before but the biggest advantage was definitely in the experience, obvious strength and the closeness of everyone there. There were no, "I am better than you, or I know more than you" attitudes going on. We were all just one-addict-helping- another and each other. It worked for me because I stayed in contact with the staff and many people who went through the program. Best place I had ever been to, my 7th in a span of almost 30 years.
Great program and counselors. Relies on money from the county, so it's underfunded. This program saved my life.
