The counselors were old-school “break the client down” types - very shaming, always accusing us of lying. I came with much lower self-esteem than when I went in, already suicidal. Strengths: Beautiful clean well-maintained house. Strong management. Excellent access to good food (clients take turns cooking supper for the group - usually about 12 clients at a time, 90 day facility). Very organized schedule and rules and abide by sanitary guidelines, health care like flu vaccines for everyone, and care to prevent communicable diseases being spread. Also excellent facility for troubled mothers with young babies, as small children can stay with their mothers. Weaknesses: Overly strong emphasis on 12-steps as the only way, and strong religion emphasis, clients can be shamed if they do not believe in God.
