Good
No follow up care fixed into place before my fianc� was released. They feed them well. That�s about it. They don�t make sure that exit day treatment is in place for the future. They don�t care once they leave the facility.

I believe sending my daughter to Bluff Plantation saved her life. No facility is going to be perfect, but these are truly caring and skilled people. The Plantation is a gorgeous and peaceful setting. The staff at Bluff made us feel comfortable and safe. The equine therapy they offer is an incredibly powerful. My daughter was in dire physical shape when she walked in the door of Bluff, needing to withdraw from drugs, get proper diagnosis and treatment for bi-polar and treatment for opiate addiction. She left Bluff in much better physical shape, with meds that helped get her bi-polar better in control (for the first time ever) and with skills to move forward with sobriety. Please plan on participating in the family weekends - it will be a great help to the patient and family members. I've learned that my daughter's addiction is always going to be a day to day struggle, but for today (6 months of sobriety) my daughter is healthy, happy, sober. We will be forever thankful to everyone who touched our lives (staff, patients and other family members) in such a positive way at Bluff Plantation.

After more than five years of struggling, we found Bluff and we finally found the help we'd been seeking. I cannot say enough good things about Bluff, the staff, or the program. From the admissions staff to the discharge staff and everyone in between, this facility is top notch. We are now returning to normal and will be eternally grateful to the staff and program of Bluff Plantation.

I watcat the Bluff from April 20 to May 20 of this year. I had addictions to opioids and benzodiazepines. It was definitely the hardest things I have ever done, but definitely was worth it. I don't think I would be alive today if I had not gone to The Bluff. I never thought life could be this good.

The staff is very nice. As for the program...it leaves much to be desired. They love to talk about steps one through three and then expect you to make your amends, step 9, in front of another patient, his/her family, and a few staff members to include one's from another center you don't know. Amends are very personal and should remain between the individual and the offended. Who is ready for that in less than a month?!! The chef is great but a lot of beef is served!!! I understand maybe 1 or 2 times a week, brut for nearly every meal is not healthy! For $3200 a day, yes that is right, so much more should be offered! No pool, no hot tub, no real yoga outside as pictured! The guys that do the equine therapy are very nice but they choose 2 people after the "meeting" to pet the horses and talk to them. There is no real riding! That would be therapy!!! Very disappointed with my experience!!!

DO NOT GO TO OR SEND a love one to this facility!!! This facility is doing nothing but preying on individuals struggling with substance abuse. They accommodations are below standards and not luxury. They mismanage dispensing medications. And their "equine" therapy consist of a man from TN bringing two wild horses every two weeks. Their are NO stables, rolling hills or exercise facility. I've reported this facility to the medical board and insurance commission. This place needs to be shut down before an individual dies!!!

Bluff changed my life! The staff cares deeply about everyone that walks through the doors. They were up front about what to expect, all costs, and provided everything they said they would. I would recommend this place to anyone I care about

I\'ve been a resident at Bluff Plantation and more than once and the owner is an \"absentee owner operator\". He concedes he is a recovering alcoholic who cares greatly for his staff and residents but truly only cares about himself and his fleeting reputation. His treatment center is failing and not a place for your loved one.

Wonderful staff,but not really equipped for methadone detox,at least not as painless as they promise. It\'s very painful & you are surrounded by other people in different stages of rehab. From my experience,everyone else said they went to an actual hospital for the detox portion, but i went straight to The Bluff and had no idea what I was in for. I was not allowed to tell my children first or go home and pack my own clothes. If not for the excellent nursing staff,I wouldn\'t have been able to speak to my children for an entire week, which turned out to be dry traumatic for my 15 yr old. I had to leave after one week because he got into trouble that my parents didn\'t know how to handle & he had never given me any trouble at all until I was jerked away from them with no way to explain why I had to go and no idea when I would be allowed to return home. I appreciate what the medical team and a\'ll the staff were trying to do,but a mother has to be there for her children and I had never left my children except to work. I never was the party girl type. I always stayed at home with my kids or took them out to movies,etc. I only had to show up for my methadone once a week and I could take them to school first. I never knew the harm that methadone was doing to my body and now that I do k ow,I will never take it again. That\'s a promise to myself.I went through pure he\'ll coming off and after 2.5 weeks,I\'m still aching but I\'m using my heating pad and an outptalent treatment center. I will never put myself or my family through that again. Not ever!!! I still have not been I touch with the methadone clinic but as I get stronger, I do plan on letting them know how I feel about their lack of information on methadone, but i guess I shoUlf have done my own research. Maybe I was too afraid of what I would find...I don\'t know

Staff, diet, accommodations were great, No pool. This place was amazing! The staff were wonderful and the fact that diet and exercise were incorporated into their program was a HUGE benefit. Lots of one on one counseling and application of spiritual principles was key. Recommend highly!

I was an actual patient at this facility. The doctors and technicians were very supportive and caring. The billing department leaves much to be desired. For example, not every test they give you while in treatment is covered by insurance. They do not communicate this to you when you take said test, and whatever credit card you have on file is then charged $1500.00 without your authorization. Again, this price is not communicated to you when you take the test.

Dr. Jacobs and the clinical staff are amazing!! It's rare to have daily interaction with the Medical Director, the doctors usually "stop by" a couple times a week at other programs. The property is amazing and the perfect location to start healing. Bluff Plantation is unlike other programs I've encountered. It was the perfect sized program, not your typical 40,60, 80+ bed treatment center. Great program for diagnosis of Dual Diagnosis.
