I would NOT recommend this facility, especially not for people who are working solely on alcohol issues. All of the community at the facility when I attended were working on narcotic issues and it was a bad environment for me. The intake process at Virginia Baptist hospital took over 8 hours and when I arrived at the “lodge” there was no food but Fruit Loops. That day they had an actual fire on the grounds because someone threw a lit cigarette on the ground and the mulch caught on fire. The week before the basement flooded because of a plumbing issue and the washing machine was not working. Don’t go here and look for other option that are better suited for alcohol treatment if that is your issue. However, I did find the counselors and staff at the lodge to be considerate and caring towards the patients.

Absolutely DO NOT attend this retreat if you or your loved one is at all serious about getting clean. While my sisters was a patient here, one of the patients here snuck in drugs and distributed them to the other patients. This is more of a summer retreat than any sort of wellness program- the regulations are lax, nobody checked me or the bags I brought into the facility on visitation day, and they take the patients into town to shop or participate in activities in public settings, and apparently don't keep track of what they're doing or bringing back when they return. When I talked to the other patients, serveral told me they'd been back to the same facility several times, dozens of times in some cases. I just can't bring myself to put one scrap of faith in the efficacy of the practice here. This is not a healthy environment for adults of any level.

I cannot recommend Pathways enough. The only complaint I can truly give is the quality of the food. But during my stay (December-January 2016-17) I did notice improvements in the meal quality. Considering how awesome the facility is though I don\'t think the food should discourage anyone from going to Pathways.

I\'m so grateful for my time at Pathways. The staff was helpful and accessible, the vibe was laid-back and the view was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much. It\'s exactly what I needed in that it provided a strong foundation for my recovery. I was there for ~23 days and am coming up on 90 days sober!

Very Good
Introduce you to outside NA/AA meetings. Lots of one on one time with counselor. Lots of indoor and outdoor activities with other patients. Pathways saved my life. Upon going there I learned so much about myself and 12 step programs and now I am 2 years clean from any mind altering or mood changing substance. The staff are phenomenal there and are willing to help at any time. Only weakness of the facility was that it was small and enclosed.

Price, staff, follow up, admissions and family treatment were all positive aspects of the facility. However the pillows were bad, bring your own.

This rehab does okay in making family and visitors feel welcome, but I haven't heard great things from people who have stayed there. However, this may be because he didn't want to be there to begin with. They offer aid but are not well staffed.
