I was at Black Bear in 2016. I went to Black Bear with the sole purpose to get better. I wanted come out a better person so I could be a better man, friend, son, uncle etc. I was not concerned with living without a cell phone, Tv, or internet. If you truly want to get your life back you can do it here if you are willing. I didn’t do exactly what they said, but I was able to take something from each session and create my own plan and it’s working for me. My accommodations were good. The facility was beautiful, and the food was satisfactory.

My son attended Black Bear Lodge recently, he has been to a few different facilities in the past , while at Black Bear he was so severely medicated that he was not able to participate and focus properly. I do not recommend your loved one participating here . It was a complete waste of money and precious time.

Nutrition, structuring daily time-schedules, counseling, including family and friends in a healthy manner and at a healthy level Not enough housing space to accommodate the overflow of new clients Great social atmosphere with enough gender restriction to keep any 'pairing off' at minimum but not to muddy restriction as making separate gender facilities. Great means from a 5 star chef. Great extra curricular activities (hiking, horseback riding, off campus aa/na meetings as well as on-site meetings)

From what I can tell, the treatments are \"sufficient\" but no better than what could be received (for a much better price) at any local rehab center. You\'re paying for the zip lining and beautiful surroundings. I attended a group session with one of the therapists and found it to be laughable--it reminded me of a \"don\'t do drugs\" seminar given to middle school children. The doctor who conducted the session was also blatantly anti-Christian and I did feel his beliefs were being pushed on the patients/guests. However, my major complaint is the way this facility treats visiting loved ones. Prepare to be treated like absolute TRASH. Visiting time in a county lockup is much more pleasant and less-troublesome than in this facility. The sales office is designed to make the sale--these are NOT the same people that you will deal with during treatment. Don\'t fall for the hype.
