This is a wonderful facility... for people who are dealing exclusively with addiction issues. However, if you suffer from moderate to severe mental illness, you will NOT find the care you need here. I was placed at High Watch due exclusively to my use of marijuana. I also have Bipolar I. For the entirety of my 93-day stay, I insisted that I needed psychiatric care. I was rarely given an opportunity to meet with the shrink, and those meetings were only 15 minutes. I was mentally in dire straits, but the idea was forced upon me, with no alternative offered, that my use of marijuana was to blame for my condition. This was conclusively proven to be incorrect when my regular shrink (who I hadn't been given an opportunity to see before I was carted off to High Watch) immediately identified that I had valproate-induced hyperammonemic encephalopathy. I was being poisoned by a medication that was supposed to be helping me, and I had been using marijuana to cope with the effects of that. I no longer partake in that particular substance, because I got the treatment I needed. But let it be known that at High Watch, they will never consider alternate possibilities. They will pigeonhole you, they will tell you that your insistence that you're not an addict means that you're an addict, and they have even been known to say that a chosen Higher Power is not a valid choice (I chose my mentally healthy self). Again, if you have primarily addiction issues, this is an excellent place to be. But it is not a dual-diagnosis facility by any stretch of the imagination. The poisoning I experienced due to their neglect has very likely had a permanent impact on me, neurologically. I can't get through a book. I can't control my impulses. My learning disability is worse than it ever was before this experience. Be aware of what you're getting yourself into.
I thought this was a great facility. They just need more holistic offerings.
Strengths: Counselor one on one, great nutrition, and classes... Weaknesses: Not enough outside or in coming AA or NA meetings.. They teach so much to remember it all, treatment is not just about drugs.. It teaches a new life to live..
