Treatment at Alina Lodge is based on the idea that addiction is a chronic, progressive and potentially fatal disease that is also highly treatable. Effective recovery involves the changing of attitudes, values, feelings and family roles, and Alina is dedicated giving individuals the therapeutic tools to begin this process. The hope is that clients will leave the rehab with a renewed feeling of optimism, as well as the coping skills to maintain a long and satisfying life in sobriety.

I hope everyone enjoys reading the anonymous reviews from Alina Lodge\'s Board of Directors. At least the Clinical Director had the integrity to use her name and title.

My brother went there and attained an extremely expensive graduation key chain. The current counselors have less sobriety time than the facilitators. The Executive Director\'s experience is primarily in Therapeutic Communities, The Clinical Director doesn\'t have a Master\'s Degree in any related fields. Alina Lodge\'s success rate is statistically irrelevant. It is an archaic program. The founder never said, Tincture equals one year or more.\" My recommendation, \"find a treatment center that accepts health insurance, then AA/NA.

I can't honestly say that Alina Lodge saved my life however, it definitely changed my way of life and the way I think and act today. CHANGE is what I truly needed in my life!! My FEAR of change was terrifying, until my fear of not changing became even more terrifying. That's when I knew I had to ask for help. Alina Lodge has developed a treatment model for alcoholism and chemical addiction. It is a highly structured plan to treat the chronic relapser. I had 8 years of sobriety/abstinence, however you look at it. Was I a chronic relapser?? I wasn't drinking, but then I did fall back into a former state or active phase of my disease. So after being in a 12 step program (AA) for several years, I do consider that a relapse.But Chronic?/ It wasn't until I spent some time at Alina, having an opened mind and the willingness to take an honest look at myself, to see some Hope. It wasn't just a relapse with alcohol I was facing, I had to take a look at the addictive illness inside of me.I had to look at my relapse in another way as well. The return to the old attitude,thoughts,feelings, emotions, and the behaviors that led me back to my alcohol addiction. I didn't realize that I was relapsing before I ever picked up that drink again! While at Alina Lodge, there was plenty to work on myself with counselors and clinical staff.There were groups that helped me to become vulnerable and share with others that common bond of addiction.I had to accept my relapse as part of my addiction and forgive myself. I needed to deflate my EGO and rebuild my spiritual foundation. How to become GRATEFUL!! I took a lot of things for granted in my life, a sense of entitlement. I became aware that the things I took for granted, other people are praying for!! Alina Lodge helped me get back into a healthy structured way of life. I have learned I need more of these things in my life, and less of me. Everyone is different, so everyone's journey is going to be different, along with their treatment and recovery. I believe God places me right where I'm supposed to be. God made Alina Lodge part of my journey, and looking back, I am truly Grateful for the time I was there. As I move forward in my journey, life seems to get better each day. I pray,ask for help, and listen to suggestions. I try to help others and give back what was given to me.I try to live life on life's terms, and do the next right thing. I attend AA meetings and have a Sponsor who can identify and be there for me. I am also currently working at Treatment and Recovery Facility as a Patient Care Technician. Again, I incorporate these things into my life each day and it brings me a certain Inner peace! At the end of each and every day I pray and remind myself...I CAN'T DO THIS ALONE!!!

I having nothing but the highest regard for Alina Lodge and the work that they do, from the admissions personnel, the excellent clinical staff and the food services and maintenance dept. We had lost a son after returning from overseas with severe PTSD, to the demons and drugs. One of our other sons after returning from overseas as well was also struggling with the same demons and PTSD. We tried several 14-30 day programs and one that is offered by the VA. None of them worked and we were at wits end and feared the worst again, death or possibly arrested. Our son was directed to Alina Lodge and we Thank God everyday for that opportunity as it put him on the correct path where he is sober, went to college and is now working on his Masters . Well let me tell you however, at first he wasn't happy there, the phone was taken away, freedom was taken away, and he had to commit and surrender plus follow all the rules or be removed from the program. He did submit as he knew he needed to get away from the addiction but the first few months were hard and eventually got into the program and allowed himself to be vulnerable and accept that he was an addict. That's when the healing started which lasted a total of just over 11 months. Our son is doing well as I stated and is currently working on his masters, works and has a home. He is active with helping veterans throughout our area as he has a special bond with them and their needs. Once again we Thank God everyday for our son having the chance to attend such an outstanding facility with staff that has your loved ones safety, health and sobriety as their most important goal. In closing I just want to say we have the deepest respect for the entire staff at Alina Lodge

Alina Lodge saved both my mother’s and my daughter’s life. My mother attended Alina Lodge in 1982 when she was in the last stage of cirrhosis of the liver. She completed the program and stayed happily sober for 20 years until her death. I attended the week long family program in 1982 and learned about the disease of alcoholism. My daughter attended Alina in 2016 and today has 3 1/2 years sobriety. I would highly recommend Alina Lodge because they focus on a 12 step recovery program which lays the foundation for life long recovery after the patient leaves rehab. Both my mother and daughter had been thru multiple treatment programs prior to going to Alina Lodge. The truth is that it takes a lot of time to recover. The body heals first but the mind and spirit take longer. Short term 28 day programs are not enough time for the alcoholic to start being honest and willing to look at their lives. The staff at Alina Lodge has been there a long time which tells me they have much needed experience and that it is a nice place to work. Many rehabs have high staff turnovers. Experience in the field of addiction is critical and most rehab centers do not have experienced staff. Alina Lodge has been in the business a long time which means they have run a successful treatment program. It really is a one of a kind rehab where the student gets highly personalized attention in a very structured environment. Structure is critical to recovery. Everyone at Alina Lodge knew my daughter by name and everyone helped her to recover. There were family sessions and several extended family weekends where we stayed at Alina and worked with a family therapist to mend our broken family. Alina encouraged my husband and I to get involved in Alanon and work our program. Most importantly, Alina listened and provided suggestions which helped us rebuild trust in the family. Dealing with addiction is painful for the patient/student and the family. Alina understands this pain and helps the student and the family take the action necessary to walk thru the pain and come out the other side. Both my mother and daughter had a clear treatment path when they graduated from the treatment. Alina referred my daughter to a sober living community for women where she continued to work on her recovery. Sober living was an important transition from Alina. If you or your loved one are serious about recovery, Alina Lodge is the best place. There simply are not many long term recovery programs-and recovery does take a long time. So many rehabs advertise yoga, meditation, massages etc... but these things won’t keep you sober. Alina offers a way of living and recovering that really works.
