User Reviews

Please note: Anyone attempting to manipulate or spam our system or the providers’ own listing pages risks having all content removed.
Don't come here if you want to be severely disappointed in a daily basis. The program is unorganized and there is no standard set of rules at all. When a shift change happens the rules in the house change depending on what staff member is working that day. The upper management will get angry if you request anything from them. The facility is run down and the owners are too cheap to fix anything that is in disrepair. If you like dirty dishes, bossy staff, this is the best place to go to. The food is terrible, most staff has a terrible attitude. Avoid this treatment center at all costs.

Totally disappointing. Place is in turmoil. Therapists stressed. No surfing, despite promises. Waste of money and time. Very disappointed!
